This one goes out to all my eco-friendly shredder pals. Does anyone know of an organization that takes guitar strings and recycles them? I run through quite a few packs per month on a heavy gigging cycle and I feel kinda bad tossing all that nice metal into the trash can.
I think this is exactly what you are looking for.

Sorry about the delay in answering. I knew I had seen this somewhere, but couldn't quite put my finger on it. It took me a while before the google-fu worked.

There really isn't any way you can "recycle" a single steel string, it's pretty much useless.
But when you have a lot of them, tie them together and trow it in a metal recycling dumpster- at least that way the process of melting and sifting out the heavier metals will be easier for the recycling company.
Our french association, Music Solidarity, recycles all guitar and bass strings! We transform it in action for solidarity and sustainable development! Come on and visit our french web site!
Thanks to everyone
