Did you know?
Once processed, the discs are used in the production of concrete. CD covers are also used for this purpose, as well as to create building materials.
DVD covers are turned into outdoor furniture, garden pots and worm farm containers.
Every part can be recycled, even the soft plastic sleeves of DVD covers; they become bin liners.
It's all processed at GT Recycling's Moolap facility, and the recycled products are used locally and overseas.
