Directories and DVDs
If directories are printed on white paper then they can be recycled in most paper banks and also some kerside recycling schemes.
You can compost pages from your directories. Remember to scrunch them up.
DVDs can be hired from libraries which will save you money.
Pre recorded DVDs can be donated to charity shops or to hospital radio. Unwanted DVDs can be turned into bird scarers by suspending them on a string.
