CDs & DVDs

Alternative ways to recycle

Contact your Building Manager to see if there is a box in your building to put used CDs and DVDs in. Otherwise, Submit a Transportation Move Request to move electronic waste to B79. For items with DOE property tags, dispose through your Property Coordinator.

Don't Dump in the Trash

Avoid throwing away CDs and DVDs because they contain hazardous metals that can leach into the soil.
