Welcome To Environmental Media Solutions Limited. (Formally Tapes UK) your main supplier for reconditioned evaluated professional media & secure media destruction services.

With over 15 years experience we pride ourselves as being market leaders in the supply of evaluated professional media, both in the UK and export markets. Our evaluated media products are 50% lower in price and 90% lower in CO2 than new media without loosing any quality you expect when using professional recordable media.

In today’s environmentally conscious world we believe the recycling, separation and recovery of materials plays an important part in UK manufacturing. We are also aware that the world has amassed  huge amounts of recordable media from Cd and DVD through to professional tape and reels for the TV production, film and broadcast market, all of which are extremely difficult to recycle.

At EMS we take great care and attention to ensure as much of the materials within these media assets are recovered and recycled. In fact we now recover up to 78% of the materials from your media assets, with zero landfill and less than 22% being sent to waste to energy. Helping our clients to stay faithful to their corporate social responsibility and environmental policies.

We are licensed through the Environment Agency and fully compliant with the Data Protection Act so you can rest assured by hiring our services you are staying faithful to your environmental and legal obligations.
