What to do with those old VHS tapes

If you still have VHS tapes, it's likely they're starting to show their age. But recycling them can be tricky.<br />

Do you have a suggestion for recycling VHS tapes beyond Craigslist, Freecycle, etc.? I've read you shouldn’t put them in your garbage due to chemicals on the black tape.

Oh VHS tapes, those were the days. If the ones you own are too damaged to view and hence donate or give away, recycling is an option. The Recycling Council of B.C. has a great David Suzuki Foundation
