Bainbridge Island Public Library accepts donations of CDs, DVDs and audiobooks (no cassette or VHS tapes). They must be in good condition in the original cases.


Disks (CDs and DVDs) may be recycled year-round in the Zero Waste box, located outdoors at the Marge Williams Center, 221 Winslow Way West. We can also take the cases! (Please remove any paper.) Place in the right-hand side of the box. If what you have exceeds the capacity of the box, please set in a bag or box next to the Zero Waste box and email bizerowaste right away so I can remove it asap.

You may pay a fee to GreenDisk to order boxes in which to recycle CDs, CD-Rs, CD-RWs, DVDs, Blu-ray, 3.5” and 5.25” floppy disks, zip and jazz disks, and cases, plus VHS and audio cassette tapes.

American Shredding in Tacoma accepts CDs, DVDs, hard drives and data tapes for recycling and will provide a certificate of secure destruction on request. Current rates (as of 9/25/22) are 55 cents per pound and walk-in customers are welcome.
