Cassette & VHS Tapes - Commercially Made - Working

The cassette, often referred to as audio cassette, cassette tape, or simply tape, is a magnetic tape sound recording format.

Few thrift organizations accept these materials unless they are in new-like condition. Consider posting to FreeCycle, Craigslist, NextDoor, or such for reuse.
