Can you recycle VHS tapes?

I first published this blog in May 2015.  I have been notified that Project Get Reel has received their e-waste license and is up and running.

VHS tapes are 80% recyclable but most end up in landfills.  It is a labour intensive job to dismantle the tapes into their component parts.  “Project Get Reel is giving people an environmentally safe way to dispose of tapes while providing employment to people who may face barriers to securing a job.”  They launched this business on April 9 ,2015.  View the video on this site to learn more about recycling VHS tapes. Watch for more news about this business trying to help the environment and provide sustainable employment for residents in Ontario Canada
