I don't know what method you use to dye the plastic. I do the frying pan on the stove method. If you notice the bleed early enough, you can often take 100% acetone and a very soft cloth/rag and remove the bleed. Be careful, of course, not to touch the acetone to any part of the design.
If you're dying translucent plastic this is much easier, you can take a peek at the disc every couple minutes through the plastic, if you notice a bleed, take it out, rinse in cold water, and try to fix it with the acetone if possilbe.
In reality, most of the time prevention is the best medicine. Make sure you don't have any air trapped between the disc and the vinyl, make sure all your cuts end where they should, etc. If you're using something other than vinyl, like contact paper, then you need to start using vinyl!
Hope this helps, let me know if any of that doesn't make sense, this is a process that is easier to explain via example rather than writing.
