videotape recyling?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to help a now-retired client dispose of several long-form multicam series worth of Betacam and Digibeta tapes that he can no longer afford to store.  All the places I used to send tapes to for recycling are gone--does anyone have any suggestions for a company still doing that work?

Not sure why you sent most of these links--I'm looking for a place to send these used and fairly old tapes to, not tech descriptions of the format etc.   We had already contact the place in NY, but the cost of shipping them the tapes from San Francisco is prohibitive.  Anywhere else?

Within a block of me are two camera operators and an editor (recently retired) representing three of the local call-letter stations. Want me to ask them what they did with their presumably huge tape libraries?

 

Also, perhaps BAVC and just about for sure the Assoc. of Moving Image Archivists (which had a great mailing list; probably still do) would have some good thoughs. https://amianet.org
