Subsequently, one may also ask, can I put CDs in the recycling bin?

CD/DVD recycling is so easy because of the materials they're made of. Even though CDs are made of highly valuable recyclable materials like polycarbonate plastic and aluminum, they're not accepted in single-stream recycling bins. Landfills are not a viable disposal option because CDs don't break down readily.

Also, how do you dispose of CDs safely? The best way to totally destroy a CD/DVD is to incinerate it. You need quite a hot fire and good ventilation if you don't want to end up with lumps of melted plastic or your lungs filled with noxious fumes. Despite these drawbacks, things don't get much more secure than burning.
