QUESTION: Many people have CDs, whether data from computers or music, that they want to dispose of. Is there any place in Colorado Springs that recycles CDs?

ANSWER: CDs are a recycling challenge. The county recycling program does not take them. Independent Records buys and trades music CDs and several Web sites purchase music CDs in large numbers. You can use Google to locate businesses in high-tech areas that smash or grind up CDs for reuse.

Otherwise, CDs have become decorative objets d’art. People decorate with them, put candles on their reflective sides, use them as drink coasters, paint them and use them in a variety of other craft projects.

One handy use is to hang them in gardens to swing in the wind and scare away crows and other unwanted birds.
