Yay! Google came up trumps again.
A company based in Bristol, Environmental Media Solutions, take VHS video cassettes which they recycle 100%. And they do it for free.
I spoke to the lovely peeps at EMS about their recycling service and they told me all about the various collection schemes they are setting up around the country.
If you are not local to one of their schemes and you have the urge to clean out your cupboards, you can post your video cassettes to them. There’s some important legal-eagle stuff – just a form you have to send with your cassettes but it won’t take you a moment to download it and fill it out. Check out their website to find out more: http://www.ems-europe.co.uk/vhs_recycling.php
Over the coming months you should see more and more local schemes being set up, so keep an eye out at your supermarket, your recycling centre or maybe your local council offices, community centre, school or library.
I’ll keep you posted of any new schemes I hear about
