BECOME A STRING RECYCLING CENTER

Playback String Recycling Centers are locations where consumers can bring their used strings for recycling. D’Addario will provide a designated bin to be set up inside your store or facility. You or your staff are responsible for periodically shipping the collected strings (free of charge) to TerraCycle to be recycled and when possible, used in the creation of new products.

As a String Recycling Center, D’Addario will include your location on our Recycling Location Finder, so individuals looking to recycle can find your location.

ABOUT PLAYBACK

After decades of pioneering efforts in sustainability, we took our environmental commitment to the next level. We’ve created Playback, an industry-wide string recycling program—powered by TerraCycle. Through Playback, you can send in used guitar 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. This program is currently open to residents living in the continental US.

ABOUT TERRACYCLE

PLAYBACK is powered by TERRACYCLE, an international upcycling and recycling company that repurposes waste into new, innovative materials and products. TerraCycle is a company that aligns with our mission of creating positive social change while minimizing our carbon footprint. With its global capabilities, TerraCycle helps us turn waste into worth.
