Program accepted waste: All types of instrument strings and clippings, including nylon, steel, and orchestral strings.
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.
