Dear Mary,
We couldn't find any recycling for them, so we offered our VHS copies (and =
admittedly, most of our titles are classic films which fit their needs) to =
nonprofit nursing homes around the country. They were very welcomed. If you=
want, I can dig up some of the contact names.

Hi!

Does anyone know of anybody who take VHS weeds for possible resale (or "gre=
