Destoying CD ROMS

Dear All,
After having a long overdue spring clean I have realised that I have lots of CD ROMS that I do not want anymore, but has sensitive data on, so I need to either destroy them or delete the information on them. Does anyone know a cheap way of doing this, that doesn't mean spending loads of money on a shreader that can do CD ROMS?
Thank you.

Thanks for the suggestions.
the snapping is hard work, tried that one before.
Fire could be a no, no in an office building, so maybe the brillo pad could do it, I'll look round the office for someone who may be able to spend some time on that one!
Thanks

You could even use a "ball-point" pen to scratch the surface (works like the brillo pads idea)

Get a good pair of heavy duty scissors and cut them in half

I like the scissor idea for its ease and lack of messyness.
thanks.

Rub them against a brick or concrete wall.

Put the disks on an uneven surface and jump on them...:-)
