To find local facilities that recycle VCR tapes, go to Earth911.com and click Recycle Search at the top of the home page. Type "video tapes" after Search For, your ZIP code after Near, then click Search; the website generates a list of local facilities and mail-in programs.
Another way to recycle VHS tapes if there is no local recycling facility is to mail them to Green Disk for a small fee. Green Disk accepts up to 25 pounds of e-waste, including VHS tapes, cassette players, rechargeable batteries and camera film. Other mail-in programs include JACO Product Recovery Services, EX-cycle Box, Domestic Metals and Plastics, and Alternative ?Community Training Recycling Program.
