I found a box of my father's collection of old movies. They are mostly VHS copies and a few BetaMax ones. I don't want to throw them because some of them still look good. But I don't want to keep them anymore because a few have accumulated molds.

I don't know about the betamax, but the vhs you ought to be able to buy an old player pretty cheap somewhere. If you want to view them.

Check out Freecycle and list what you have. Craigslist is also a good bet. Some people can't give the stuff away so I'm not sure it'll work, but it's worth a try.

You can always recycle them. Green Disk accepts VHS tapes. You can mail the tapes to them in a box. I wouldn't keep them around if I were you. Mold can make you sick.

Thanks for the suggestions. I wish I can still sell them, so I will try to see if there are collectors out there willing to buy these collections. I'm worried about the molds, so I've discarded the tapes that have mold in them.
