    Hi everyone

    Have 3 large bags of vhs tapes to rehome. Would rather donate to charity but happy to sell for a small fee and donate instead. Must be collected, sorry no transport, but we have good transport links. Range from U certificate to 15. Far too many to list.

    I’m in Stockwell, London.

    There must be an Artist/Sculpture out there somewhere who can build a garden sculpture from hundreds of tapes??
    – A good project for Art colleges!!
    Stick them together and make a new version of ‘Angel of the North’!

    There is a company in Bristol who according to their website can recycle video tapes, and will take up to 100 of them at a time. You just have to cover the postage. Video tapes aren’t that heavy, so shouldn’t be too expensive to send, and better than landfilling them.

    I have a collection of over 170 video`s that are in excellent condition
    in their video cases and are not wanted any more. They consist of a
    wide range of interests such as Disney, comedy, drama, history, famous people, classic`s and TV programmes such as Friends.

    They were all commercially bought and none were taped off the TV. I would like to have them donated to charity or sell for a small fee. I`m in Drogheda Co. Louth Ireland and I`m afraid that I don’t have transport. If anyone wants them please contact me and we will sort something out
