At Pianos Recycled, we have a simple objective - creating piano futures for old unwanted pianos!
We save unwanted pianos from an ignoble end through handcrafted restoration or imaginative re-purposing. We process each instrument thoughtfully and creatively to extract not only a useful future as a unique and valued item, but we also ensure the embodied qualities of the piano's materials and craftsmanship receive the respect they deserve.
Most unwanted pianos end up in landfill, which is both a loss of heritage and waste of resources. If you have an unwanted piano and want to be environmentally responsible, you can now choose a viable and unique alternative path for it. And help sustain our planet into the future!
Our NEW warehouse and showroom is now OPEN! We are looking forward to your visiting us at Unit 10/13-17 Crawford St Braeside VIC

From notes once played with grace
A piano finds a resting place
No longer keys that dance and sing
Its parts await a second swing
With hammers, strings and ivory too
Its soul lives on, in what it's due
Recycled, repurposed, made anew
A second chance for music to ensue
So listen close, as it takes its stand
A symphony in the craftsman's hand
A beautiful sound, once more at play
In a new form, on a brighter day.
The ancient skills, craftsmanship, scarce resources and provenance embodied in the piano
The number of pianos ending up in landfill and consequently the impact on the environment
A piano to playable condition where possible and feasible
A piano's materials into unique, customized, individually designed products.
A piano's residual materials for later re-use
The Pianos Recycled community embraces Circular Economy principles as it believes transitioning away from a world of take, make and throw away and towards one that is regenerative and renewable provides some of the answer for the planet's health.
Our community consists of individuals, businesses and organisations like these:
