31 pounds of cassette tapes

Sadly, these may end up in a landfill. I’ve listed them on e-bay, but they aren’t exactly sought after items. I can always hope for the best though. These are not music tapes, they are religious materials, which makes them much, much harder to get rid of. Especially since I disagree with much of what’s on them, myself. If they don’t sell on e-bay, I may try my local freecycle before tossing them all.

One more reason I prefer MP3 and digital media.

There are a few options for recycling them:

Success!!! At http://www.earth911.com, you can type in an item and your zip and come up with a location that recycles a certain item. And there is a recycler that takes cassettes which I will be driving nearby soon. They also accept mail ins.

About thrugracealone

I'm a country girl raised city. I prefer open windows to AC, love a good thunderstorm, and enjoy hearing the owls and seeing lightning bugs. A bit old-fashioned, maybe, I can recognize many trees by name, resent elms and weeds, wish for a large garden and canning skills, and hope someday to downsize and get a few acres in the country. I am blessed with a terrific church, a good job, a sturdy house, two cats and a yard full of strawberries and mulberries in the right season. Some of my other favorite things to do are spoiling nieces and nephews, reading, swimming, biking, long walks, and blogging, of course. One of my favorite stories is creation. My abbreviated version goes like this: 1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2Now the earth wasa formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters... And God moved... And God said... And it was very good. If God can speak to darkness, to an earth without form and void, and make something like this that we see everyday, and make it very good (and it was even better before the Fall!), He will surely make something wonderful out of the dark, void situations I sometimes find myself in. He has, and it's been very good. Two top posts: Can a Person Lose their Salvation? http://wp.me/p1CY5z-1R Baptism! http://wp.me/s1CY5z-baptism

  1. And would you believe, I have someone watching my ebay sale already. I may actually get paid to get rid of them.
