Once you transfer all your tapes to DVD or USB Flashdrive, it’s time to get rid of them.
So Now What??
Yes videotapes are recyclable…but its difficult to do, and easier said than done.
When it comes to recycling, video and audio tapes are not accepted in any local recycling program.
This means you will need to find a techno-trash specialist recycling service which recycles old technology in an environmentally friendly way.
Or, you can look for a waste-to-energy incineration recycling plant where they will be burned to produce green energy. In both cases there is nothing locally in Jacksonville. The good news is video and audio tapes are not considered household hazardous waste and can be tossed in the garbage. Just make sure your tapes do not contain personal information.
