Used Tapes Of All Kinds

CTV-21, the local access station of Charter Communications, is again collecting unwanted videotapes, CDs, DVDs, cassettes, and even 8-track tapes for recycling.

These items are quickly becoming obsolete and will only add to the environmental challenge of too much refuse, too little space. To aid in this effort, Charter Communications’ CTV21 began collecting the tapes in April to correspond with Earth Day, and will be accepting these items throughout the year for its 3rd Annual Recycle Your Tapes Campaign.

Charter will be paying the cost of collecting, shipping, and recycling these unwanted, non-biodegradable items by working with GreenDisk (GreenDisk.com), an environmentally conscious company. GreenDisk will securely dispose of all the recorded information on tapes by bulk erasing, and then breaking down each tape to reuse the plastic in the manufacture of new products.

Old recorded media in any format can be dropped off at the CTV-21 studios at 11 Commerce Road in Newtown, or the Charter Communications customer payment center at 9 Commerce Road, Newtown. Those who have more than 100 tapes to drop off are asked to call 304-4050 for instructions before visiting either drop-off location.

For more information on CommuniTyVision 21 and the Recycle Your Tapes campaign call 304-4050 or visit CommuniTyVision21.com.
