Disposing of DVD Screeners

What do I do with my DVD screeners after Emmy season?

Please note: members are no longer receiving DVD screeners sent by the Television Academy!

Here are options for disposing of DVD screeners:

  1. If you have access to an LA City recycling bin (at home or work) you may recycle DVDs that way. DVDs and CDs are polycarbonate plastic, which typically falls into the "7" category of plastics. Other municipal systems that accept 1-7 plastics should accept DVDs (and CDs for that matter) for recycling, but you may want to call first to confirm.

  2. The Television Academy will NOT accept DVDs for recycling.
