Precision Disc Manufacturing Corp., a leading DVD and CD duplication company based in Canada, has just launched a new recycling initiative to help consumers keep their unwanted DVD and CD discs and cases out of their local landfills.
“It’s a simple yet effective program.” explains the DVD and CD duplication 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 we’ll recycle them through our existing in-house recycling program and channels.”
Recycle your unwanted CDs and DVDs:
- 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 Precision Disc's shipping/receiving bay door. They will add your discs to their own disc recycling system and then they’ll recycle the box too.
- If you are shipping the goods the responsibility for paying for the shipment is yours – Precision Disc 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.
Recycle your unwanted CD and DVD Cases:
- Put your unwanted CD and DVD cases in a cardboard box, clearly mark “for recycling” on the box and either drop the box off or have it delivered to Precision Disc's shipping/receiving bay door. They’ll add your unwanted cases to their own recycling system and then they will recycle the box too.
- If you are shipping the goods to the company, the responsibility for paying for the shipment is yours as Precision Disc will not accept C.O.D. or ‘collect’ shipments.
- Please ensure that all paper inserts and discs have been removed from the cases. The paper inserts can be recycled in your regular community-based program.
- If you are sending CD and DVD cases as well as discs, please ensure that you supply the discs in a separate box.
As a DVD and CD duplication company, Precision Disc Manufacturing Corp. provides factory-direct disc manufacturing services along with a wide range of eco-friendly print and packaging solutions for their clients throughout Canada and the USA.
Durnie continues, “As a company that specializes in DVD and CD duplication we recognize our responsibility to be a good global citizen so we’ve been putting a strong emphasis on utilizing environmentally-friendly equipment, materials and processes for quite some time. We don’t just talk-the-talk when it comes to being environmentally responsible so we’re always looking for new ways to enhance what we’ve already put in place and this DVD CD recycling program is a good example of our efforts to make a difference.”
