    Nice idea, but what happens to the metal layer and the dye layers in R/RW discs?

    probably same thing that happens with any other recycling plant. i'm sure they'll just melt it down and whatever solids are left behind are either thrown away or used for another recycling process.

    I wonder if the laptops will be certified AOL disc free?

    Make a laptop entirely of those. There's far too many of those discs still. Waste of space they were.

    While I still have a copy of DOS 6 on floppies floating around the house, I believe I have finally purged all the AOL discs (floppies and optical.)

    I like this - too bad it's only in Japan. It'll be nice if they're serious about it, and this isn't some greenwashing BS.
