HOW TO RECYCLE YOUR STRINGS

ABOUT PLAYBACK

Did you know that musical instruments are not recycled through municipal recycling programs? It is estimated that more than 1.5 million lbs. of instrument string metal could be put into landfill every year.

OUR IMPACT

Our goal is to help facilitate 100% recycling and upcycling of strings to minimize not just our own impact, but our entire industry's.

ABOUT PLAYBACK

After decades of pioneering efforts in sustainability, we took our environmental commitment to the next level. We've created 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.

TerraCycle is a company that aligns with our mission of creating positive social change while minimizing our carbon footprint.

FAQs
  • How long does it take to receive my recycling points?

    Please allow 3-5 weeks of processing time to receive recycling points.

  • What countries is Playback available in?

    Playback is currently only available in the U.S.

  • Is there a minimum amount of strings I can recycle?

    In efforts to reduce the carbon footprint it takes to ship strings, all shipments must weigh a minimum of 2 lbs. No exceptions will be made for shipments under 2 lbs. If you don't have enough strings to recycle through Players Circle, you can recycle at your local Guitar Center, or any participating retail location.

  • Can I recycle my strings if I work at a store or any business/education facility?

    Yes, you can! However, if you are a dealer, luthier, retail location, or school, do NOT use the shipping label listed on the Playback page. Please email playback@daddario.com and we are happy to set you up as a recycling center.

    NOTE: If you identify as any of the above and send us your recycled strings, points will not be awarded.
