Where to recycle VHS video tapes

Sometime soon you will have to face what to do with all those VHS video tapes you don't need anymore.

Some estimates put the total private holding across the country at around 1.5 billion cassettes.

Environmental Media Solutions are able to recycle 100% of tapes, CD’s and DVD’s and their cases. The service is free of charge, though unfortunately we can’t cover postage or shipping costs.

We handle a variation of recordable media, these are
  • VHS
  • Betamax
  • Audio Cassettes
  • Floppy Discs
  • Mini DV
  • CD
  • DVD
  • Games
  • Mini Disc
  • Any old computers, hard drives etc.
You are welcome to drop off your waste at our Bristol facility where we are open Monday to Friday 9am through to 5pm. Please don’t travel too far (unless you are visiting Bristol for personal reasons) as this will add to the carbon footprint of your waste. We can recommend www.interlinkdirect.co.uk as a courier where you can price up and pay for your parcels before shipping. Interlink will come to your home and collect.

Help us spread the word. Not many people know about what we do and how we help stop recordable media such as VHS entering landfill.  With your help we can spread the word that there is an organisation where you can recycle these types of waste. Search for Environmental Media Solutions on Facebook, like our page and help spread the word. The world will be a better place for it.
