Musical instruments

General Comment / Tip

Musical instruments come in such a variety of shapes, sizes and materials that they are difficult to recycle.

However, some instruments may have metal parts, for instance, which are recyclable.

Alternatively, if they are still in good condition, consider the following options:

Pass them on…some charity shops will accept donations of instruments and sheet music.

Online: Advertise items for free at places such as Free Trade Ireland or Adverts.ie, Or sell them on websites like eBay and Done Deal.

Recycle them?

As musical instruments come in such a variety of shapes, sizes and materials they are difficult to recycle.

However, some instruments may have metal parts, for instance, which are recyclable.

You cannot recycle musical instruments in your household recycling bin, but you may be able to recycle some parts at the local civic amenity site.

If they are too complicated to disassemble, you should put them in the general waste bin.
