As our communities transition to streaming services and cloud-based storage, many media storage devices are being opted out of. Because of the limited recycling market for these unique items, there aren’t many options for recycling.

If recycling isn’t an accessible option, please consider donating old media to secondhand stores or a music reseller.

Examples of Media Items:

  • Floppy disks
  • CDs
  • DVDs
  • VHS tapes
  • Cassette tapes
  • Vinyl records
