VHS and cassette tape recycling in November

Shorewood residents can bring unwanted cassette or VHS tapes for recycling to Shorewood Community & Event Center during the month of November. All collected tapes will be sent to GreenDisk, Inc. for recycling. The company recycles the plastic and recycles or reuses any portion of the tape they can. Not all magnetic tape can be recycled. The magnetic tape in VHS and cassette tapes causes tangling issues at recycling centers, so no tapes should be placed in curbside recycling carts. Shorewood ID is required for recycling.

If you have questions about the recycling of these items, or any materials that cannot go in your curbside recycling cart, check the Hennepin County Green Disposal Guide, or contact the city at 952.960.7900.
