    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.
