How long would it take for a CD to breakdown in sunlight? They scream out of a clay target thrower. Makes a batu look like a slug.

They're made of PVC so, well, forever...

I hang them from trees to scare parrots away from my vegetable garden.

I recall a year or 2 ago that the Japanese were working on CDs made with a paper-based substrate, and were supposed to be recycleable. I don't know what came of it.

But I did come across this on a quick Google search:

" GreenDisk, an organization headquartered in Sammamish, Washington, cleanly disposes of and recycles electronic media devices (including CDs, DVDs, and jewel cases) and most other forms of "techno trash." EcoDisk, based in Tacoma, Washington, offers a similar service. Both organizations require a small payment to cover the costs of recycling. To learn more, call either organization or visit their website: GreenDisk (www.greendisk.com); EcoDisk (www.ecodisk.com) 888/797-SOFT."
