unwanted cd discs

  capnsofa 18:14 02 Jan 2006

Not a technical problem, but hoping someone will have ideas.
Over the past few years I have accumulated a large number of CD discs e.g. from magazines, mailshots etc which I do not want but being a bit of a hoarder, I have been reluctant to throw away.
One suggested use has been as a bird scarer, but I am trying to attract them to my garden, not frighten them away!
Any suggestions on other uses (I am not very artistic!) or is there any sort of organisation which could use them?

You may not want to use them as bird deterrents in your garden, but I bet you'll have neighbours who do! Anyone who grows vegetables values bird scarers. If none of your neighbours want them, why not offer them to the local allotment or gardening club?
Alternatively, they make good reflectors for hard-to-see driveway gateposts, etc.

Ask the FE if he is still collecting them. I sent him a pile before Xmas. How about it Peter ?

I quite often see bundles of old disks in the local charity shop, they dont get much for them but they quite often go.

Yes, send them to the FE. He put a thread up on the Forum asking for unwanted CD/DVDs some time ago. (I can't find it at the moment).

There is no closing date, but email him first just to make sure he is still accepting them.

Just found the original thread from the FE.

Don't know whether it is still relevant or not though.
