Curbside Pickup Available

Did you know that Pittsburgh Guitars recycles strings? Yes, we do! Instead of throwing your old strings in the trash, bring them in and we will take care of the rest!

What types of strings do we recycle? We recycle all brands and types of instrument strings and clippings, including electric guitar and bass, acoustic guitar, nylon, and orchestral strings.

How does this process work you ask? Well, D’Addario started the Playback recycling program years ago and we are very proud to participate. We have a bin in the shop and when it gets full, we get a shipping label from D’Addario and send them off to be recycled.

What happens to these strings you ask? Well, we ship them to TerraCycle. Once collected, the metal and nylon strings are cleaned and separated by material type. The materials are recycled into raw formats that manufacturers use to make new products.

Shop boss, Hanna, is a big fan of our string recycling program.
