How do I dispose of old video tapes?
I'm doing some overdue decluttering and trying to get rid of some old video tapes as I no longer have any means of watching them. As they're last century's technology, they obviously have no commercial value and so the charity shops won't want them - and presumably they don't recycle. So, if anyone knows of an environmentally-friendly way of getting rid of them, please let me know.

Hazel - some charity shops do still take them - and some people are still glad to buy them - what is the difference in quality with DVDs - I don't find any. Same with CDs and old vinyl records. We still have a combined video and DVD player and can also transfer home made videos to DVD- they are fantastic to watch now the grandchildren are grown up and some relatives and friends are no longer here -does the SCAD shop in Cross Hills accept videos?

Many thanks for you advice, Joan. Somebody might want some of the videos as, for example, I have both series of the original Poldark and also the complete Sharpe series, so I'll try the SCAD shop in Cross Hills - and, if you think of anywhere else that might take them, please let me know.
