I wanted the blu ray discs, still have them all , just not the jewel cases as too much bulk.
Do what you want, but please don't go on about the silliness of others not being able to recycle your waste.
If you were close to me, I'd take them off you and I would find someone who could use them, local bands producing there own CD's might be a possibility.
Why do I pay local taxes other than to supply services like recycling facilities? Look I tried to do the right thing. I contacted lambeth council about having them recycled who said not to put them into the recycle bins but that the local recycle centre could take them. When I visited them, one of the grunts said no we cant recycle them, put them in the waste bin over there. I was surprised that they rejected them as I thought the plastic was very recyclable, thats the silliness of them being rejected, but not having a car to shift them have limited options. As for a local band wanting them , they are blu ray cases with the blu ray
monica on them so I doubt of limited use to any one.
There must be bands called "blu ray" out there - have you looked?? <joking !!! >
Seriously, I'm a proper "Green Warrior", but I think it's really harsh to criticise someone over sending these to landfill. I doubt most people would think it was feasible to recycle them - I know *I* didn't know they could be. I mean, EVERYTHING can be re-used somehow, but the cost/effort is sadly prohibitive for most packaging, especially very bespoke plastic designs. I'd rather mercalia spent his/her effort on bigger stuff.
(That's not to say I don't applaud those folk who make the effort to re-use/upcycle things like this
