Tips & Warnings

  • Recycle CDs that Internet access companies send you in the mail.
  • Teachers and nonprofit organizations can ask U.S. Postal Service carrier stations for the undeliverable CDs and other craft items that are normally thrown away. Address a letter to the U.S.P.S. station manager, and make arrangements to pick these items up regularly.
