Donate commercially recorded tapes. Otherwise, cassettes can be dropped at the Berkeley Community Conservation Center, 1231 Second Street (Mon-Sat 9am-330pm) 510-524-0113.


Transfer VHS & cassette tapes to a digital format. There are professional businesses that do this - ask about audio or video transfers.


The estimated lifespan of magnetic tape media is 10-25 years, and the last known VHS manufacturing company ceased production of VHS in 2016.
