Recycle instrument strings through this program.
TerraCycle® and D’Addario have partnered to create a free recycling program for instrument strings and clippings. By recycling in this program, D’Addario will make a charitable donation on your behalf, or you may earn loyalty points through D’Addario’s Playback program.
Program accepted waste: Instrument strings and clippings from any string instrument and any brand
Once collected, the metal and nylon strings are separated by type and the metal is melted down and smelted into new metal alloys. The nylon is recycled into industrial plastic applications. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.
As thanks for your dedication to Eliminating the Idea of Waste, you may choose one of two ways to be rewarded: D’Addario will make a donation to the D’Addario Foundation on your behalf, or you may earn loyalty points through the D’Addario Playback program.
D'Addario prides itself on promoting the three E's of sustainability - Economic Development, Environmental Health and Social Equity - in all aspects of the company.
