CD recycling?

I am looking for a place to recycle old scratched CDs here in Duluth. Like half of the people my age, we burned tons of CDs years ago and now I have piles of them but can’t bring myself to put them in the garbage, there’s got to be a better place for them to be disposed. Any ideas?

Jake Larson mentioned on Facebook recently that he spotted a burned copy of Crew Jones' Who's Beach in the bin at Western Lake Superior Sanitary District's Materials Recovery Center. So I've stolen his image to illustrate that apparently WLSSD has a bin.

I use mine for coasters.  Of course the hole in the middle sometimes defeats the purpose but I thought it was a neat idea.

Thief! The bin is by the radios and TVs and stuff. You're not supposed to dig through it and take stuff. Don't tell anyone I took the Crew Jones CD.

Best Buy has bins for recycling CDs, DVDs and cases in its entry way.

Thanks all! I'll be happy to get them out of my house!

You can tie them to sticks for the garden where the swinging and light reflection keeps 'critters away.  Tie them direcly to trees to keep deer, etc., away.  It works! (but they're ekind of ugly)

I like to buy old mix cds at garage sales. I love music, so there's that. But even more it gives you a glimpse into someone elses's joys and sorrows. One of our favorites was one called "Ladies Night." I have no idea who made them but sometimes I can can guess when. I guess I have a big stack I need to unload, too.  

I would keep your other CDs. I had to sell hundreds of CDs back in a food vs. music stage of my life about 5 years ago. I miss many of them and find myself rifling through CD bins looking for them, like old lost loves.
