Press Release: VHS and Cassettes

Because it is spring cleaning time, people are trying to donate VHS and cassettes to libraries. Many libraries no longer have these materials in their collections.

Many area recycling centers will not accept these materials. Some of the area libraries have shared the following information about donation locations.

1) Goodwill and Savers stores both accepted VHS as donations

2) Libraries have used this company, Greendisk in other libraries I have worked in – up to 25 pounds of VHS for $9.95. Our transfer station cannot recycle them, so I would rather pay for disposal, than have them used as landill. Gotbooks and bighearted books will not take them either.

3) The CD Recycling of America organization has a branch in Salem, NH. You can deliver or mail, and they take both VHS tapes, cassettes, AND they took a bunch of our security cases we were no longer using: http://www.cdrecyclingcenter.com/
