Where Else Could It Go?

Alternative Options for Jewel Cases:

Only an EMPTY plastic jewel case (with the disc and paper insert removed) can be placed in an orange Hefty® ReNew® bag. DO NOT place CDs (discs) in the bag. FirstStar Recycling offers this special program to collect hard-to-recycle plastics in our community. To participate, you can purchase orange Hefty® ReNew® bags, which will be collected through your existing curbside and drop-off site services. When filled with accepted materials and tied shut, the bright orange Hefty® ReNew® bag is the ONLY bag that can be placed in a curbside recycling cart or drop-off site container.

Did You Know

CD and DVD discs are made with a metallic material inside a plastic shell. These materials are very difficult to separate and not easily recycled through traditional methods. Discs from CD and DVD collections should be placed in the garbage when they cannot be reused.
