What can I do with items such as CD's, VHS tapes, DVD's, floppy disks, and other types of "storage media"?

Storage media items that are not outdated can sometimes be donated to a local school, charity, or thrift store. There is also the option of listing these items on the Surrey Reuses website, or contacting the RCBC Hotline for possible reuse options in your area.

If these items are ready for recycling, they can be taken to a Return-It electronics recycling depot. This recycling program includes items such as CD's, DVD's, floppy disks, flash drives, VHS tapes, and vinyl records. Cases for these items are included in the recycling program as well, provided that the cases are brought with the storage media items themselves. Empty cases without storage media are not included in the program.

For more information on this program or to find your nearest drop off depot location, visit the Return-It electronics website, or call the RCBC Recycling Hotline.
