Video / cassette tape recycling


We received this letter recently

"Dear Sirs

I have a large quantity of audio and video cassettes (not commercial recordings) which I no longer have any use for. Are you aware of any organisations or contacts which may have any use for these items? Perhaps there is a recycling agency in the area willing to accept this kind of material.

I would very much appreciate your help."


After a wee bit of investigation, our lovely landlords, the Ethical Property Co, gave us this info:


The Recycling People Limited

Unit 1, Wolf Business Park, Alton Road

Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire HR9 5NB

Telephone: 01989 566288 Fax: 01989 566997


'We recycle CD & DVD discs/case/paper - for this service we don’t charge, but we do charge for recycling VHS tapes. The cost to recycle VHS tapes is up to 50 tapes £15 & £25 for 150. You would have to deliver the material to us we could not collect on small amounts.'


We thought other readers might find this info useful, so hereby share it with you. If you know of any other route to recycling for this type of item, we'd love you to add a comment below. Thanks.


Beccy. 20/7/10
