Did You Know

The tape inside of a video or audio cassette is made with a metallic material covered by a plastic shell. Additionally, there are sometimes small metal parts that hold the plastic cassette cover together. Because these materials are very difficult to separate, tapes are not easily recycled through traditional methods. Audio tapes and VHS tapes should be placed in the garbage when they cannot be reused.
