How does my store/school/business become a string recycling center?

If you are a retail store, education institution, instrument manufacturer, repair facility, or performing artist, keep reading to find out more.

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 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 creation of new products.

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



Step 1. Collect your strings! We recommend at least 30lbs to help deter fuel costs. 

Step 2. Create an account on TerraCycle's website here.

Step 3. There will be a free shipping label in your profile. You can download this label and use this on your shipment

Step 4 (optional). You can request a semi-permanent collection bin for your location here.


If you need any further assistance, we have more information on our Playback for recycling centers available for you that you can reference here.
