Cradle to Grave
Cradle to Grave is also known as life cycle analysis and instruction. It is a process whereby a company learns the responsible steps for the disposal of goods it has produced when they reach their end of life. This includes educating, assisting, and directing the end user of a product how to properly dispose of it. More importantly, when a product is recyclable, and should not end up in a landfill or incinerator, the manufacturing company should do whatever possible to mark the product with recycling instructions. These instructions should also be included on product packaging and manuals when applicable, as well as the manufacturer’s website. Environmental concern and sustainability is on many people’s minds, and it is becoming more common for people to expect this information from the manufacturer of a product.
Most people don't even realize CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray, discs can be recycled into new everyday items, thus conserving natural resources - namely oil. Also, those folks that feel placing discs in everyday office or town recycling bins also don't realize that single stream recycling centers generally can not facility the proper sorting of this #7 plastic, thus rendering it bound for a landfill.
To recycle anything properly, there needs to be enough of that one item to make transporting, handling, machining and processing it environmentally friendly. No one focuses and collects DVDs, CDs and Blu-ray like the CD recycling Center does. Since we collect millions, it is very easy for us to successfully recycle them, with limited environmental impact, and thus, properly manage their end-of-life.
