Welcome to Pianos Recycled

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!

You can Browse Gifts, Furniture, Art, Timber and Pianos and Be Inspired!
