  1. I’m wondering if I can bring in VHS Cassette Tapes. When I click on the link above, “Electonics Recycling Accepted Items,” VHS Cassette Tapes show up under both Accepted and Not Accepted items. Thanks!

    • Hi Dan,

      Sorry for the confusion–I asked Dynamic and they can indeed accept VHS cassettes! I will make a note on the website.
