    D'Addario appears to be having issues with their web site at the moment for anyone using the links above. http://playback.daddario.com/ is responding but anything to the main domain is returning File Not Found - 404 errors.

    UPDATE: 8:10 a.m. appears resolved.

    This is a fantastic program, and you can also donate the player's points you get for recycling to the D'Addario Foundation to promote music education.

    I'm glad they mentioned local retailers as well - I take mine to Guitar Works Ltd in Evanston, as they've been supporting this program from early on.

    Made my first string recycling deposit today at Mass Street Music. Got to see what 10 lbs of spent, recycled strings look like even though you can nowhere see the bottom of them in the recycling container. Impressive. The box that contains the strings is probably 1' x 1' x 2' tall with a slot for inserting strings.

    I've been sending my strings in for the last year and it couldn't be easier!

    D'Addario provides postage through the players circle program, just print it off, tape it to the box, and off they go.

    That's a really great thing, I guess I'll start saving my old strings, if I would've started 20+ years ago I guarantee I'd have some serious pounds!

    Noting that April is "Earth Month" we're reminding everyone of this great string recycling program. We've been dumping the Cafe's old spent strings locally at Mass Street Music. Great program!
