MAY 19 2010
In conjunction with our
parent company Precision Disc Manufacturing Corp., CDwest.ca
has launched a new program to keep your unwanted CD discs
and cases out of your local landfill.
With the knowledge that
these items are not accepted by most community curbside
recycling services, CDwest.ca will recycle these materials
for you as a part of our existing in-house recycling
"Its a simple yet
effective program. explains our company's Vice President
Bruce Durnie, I'm not aware of any community-based recycling
programs that accept CDs, DVDs and their plastic cases, so
what are people doing when they want to get rid of them? If
you throw them into the garbage they just end up in your
local land-fill. To prevent that from happening you can now
send those materials to us and well recycle them through our
existing in-house recycling program and channels.
Put your unwanted CDs and
DVDs in a cardboard box, clearly mark for recycling on the
box and either drop the box off or have it delivered to our
shipping/receiving bay door. We will add your discs to our
own disc recycling system and then well recycle the box too.
If you are shipping the
goods the responsibility for paying for the shipment is
yours we will not accept C.O.D. or collect shipments.
If you are concerned
about sensitive or personal data content on your unwanted
discs it is recommended that you score or damage the
data-side of the disc in a way that prevents the information
from being accessed.

DVD cases in a cardboard box, clearly mark for recycling on
