VHS Tapes Zero Waste Box
Please choose the size box you'd like to purchase. When you receive your box fill it with the appropriate waste streams. Once full, bring your box to any UPS location or schedule a collection to send your items back to TerraCycle using the pre-paid UPS shipping label which is already affixed to your box. When we receive your box, we'll safely recycle all of the collected materials.
The collected waste is mechanically and/or manually separated into metals and plastics. Metals are melted for steelmaking, and plastics undergo extrusion and pelletization to be moulded into new recycled plastic products. Any salvageable e-waste is refurbished and re-used. All data is completely wiped from applicable e-waste, but we ask that you restore your device to factory settings prior to sending in.
Please send us your discarded VHS tapes and cassettes
include unwanted CDs, video games, computer discs, floppy disks, CD players, VHS players, DVD players. Please note that we will not accept organics, broken glass, bio-medical waste, soiled nappies, expired medication, pesticides, paint, pressurised canisters, and medical sharps in any of our boxes. Please send traditional recyclables through your local council system.
In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e. paint from paint tubes). Additionally, if you choose to rinse your product, please note that it must be completely dry prior to shipping.
