The Disc Eraser is Eco-Friendly and promotes CD Recycling.
Q: Why not break or shred a disc?
A: In addition to the
potential danger, broken and shredded discs create eWaste.
During the CD recycling process, the entire metal foil layer is "washed" off the disc. This requires an intact disc.
"Whole discs only, do not cut or break"- NESAR Systems, a leading CD recycler.
"Most shredders on the market mix the plastic shreds in with the paper, contaminating the plastic with paper, and vice versa, thus preventing proper recycling of both materials. Paper and plastic need to be kept separate for recycling." Bruce Bennett, President, the CD Recycling Center of America.
Over 20 billion recordable discs have been sold worldwide. eWaste is a serious problem.
Every month, in the US alone, over 3 million discs (100,000 lbs) require secure disposal.
Why shred? Recycle instead!
Simply dispose your erased discs in any plastics recycling bin. Your local recyclers will sort and send them out in bulk to the CD recyclers, as shown below. This is currently done with discarded AOL, commercial, and non-confidential CDs that are found intact.
CD Recycling info.
Recycling is MORE SECURE than breaking or shredding. Instead of creating eWaste particles that are dumped in landfill, recycled discs are completely melted down and the raw materials can be re-used. Unlike incinerating CDs, no toxic fumes are released into the atmosphere.
