Dispose of old CDs and DVDs in an environmentally friendly way with our CD and DVD recycling program.
CDs and DVDs are mostly made from plastics (polycarbonate) and metal (aluminium and gold), and like many items we use, they have the potential to be recycled and repurposed into other things of use, such as:
- Automotive industry parts
- Office equipment
- Street lights
- Electrical cable insulation.
As CDs and DVDs are not suitable for household recycling bins, this program provides residents with a more sustainable way to dispose of these items, helping to divert more waste from landfill.
Where can you recycle?
Drop off unwanted CDs and DVDs (including their cases) into designated collection boxes at the following locations:
|HJ Daley Library
||Corner Hurley Street and Camden Road, Campbelltown
|Eagle Vale Central

CDs and DVDs collected will be sent away for recycling, which will involve removing the metallic coating from the discs and recycling the plastic component. The cases and paper inserts are also recycled.
