ACT (a community health promotion outreach group)

The tapes are recorded over and used in the unit’s activities to promote healthy living and well-being, and as talking books/newspapers/newsletter for visually impaired people.

Nigel has let us know that thanks to Recycle This readers, he currently has enough tapes for the time being. If he needs any more in the future, he’ll let us know and we’ll update this page.

Debbie of AnalogPark

Not a charity but Debbie collects colourful and interesting looking tapes to upcycle into belt buckles and the like.

Email her at custom.ink (at) hotmail.co.uk if you think you have any that will be suitable.

    Hello.
    I have about 150 audio cassette tapes, mainly copies or compilations.
    Anyone want them?
    Would have to be collected from London, N16.
    Thanks.

      Did you get any response Moira? I’ve inherited many of these as well as VHS videos. I don’t want to dump them and wondered if you’d found the answer.

        Same problem (opportunity?) here. Dozens of largely classical tapes of high quality but not of use to me. Any ideas, anyone, please?

    I am a resident of Chennai. I have a good collection of carnatic music songs, mostly in good condition. Since these days there are no takers for such materials as things like memory card etc have taken over. They also occupy much space apart from the maintenance they need. I shall be extremely happy if some one takes them (absolutely free) and more, if they could use them as well. If any individual or temple people show interest, I shall be very happy and satisfied to donate them.

    I have a large number of classical music audio tapes (professional – not home recorded) from my late father. I don’t want to put them into land fill. Would anyone want them ??
