Want to stop all your old CDs, DVDs and jewel cases from ending up as landfill? These and other technotrash items like printer cartridges, videotapes, cell phones, PDAs, music and game players, and old digital cameras, are non-biodegradable, and often contain hazardous materials like batteries or mercury. A few cities around the country have started recycling programs for tech waste, usually including computers and monitors too. But the majority of us are forced to throw it in the trash.
