This is a question asked by many data center professionals, in our experience we often get the response that they would rather pay to shred the tapes rather than recycle. This makes total sense until you realize that recycling data tape with a reputable "tape" recycling company is actually a much more detailed and traceable process. With VolSer and serial number recording and complete chain of custody you have more documentation of each tape than any other method of disposing.
