What type of plastic are VHS cassettes made of?

    They are made out of various plastics. Apparently, the interior shell and exterior shell are not of the same plastics. The plastics that were use to make vhs tapes were: polystyrene, polyethylene and polypropylene

    I agree with deniseapril. VHS tapes are made from a variety of plastics. One thing to note is that while the plastic of a VHS tape is recyclable, the mylar tape inside is not. The same goes for cassette tapes. Earth911 reports that recycling centers have difficulty recycling VHS tapes and cassette tapes because only certain pieces are recyclable.
