Used tallit and tzitzit strings


Technically, tzitzit-strings that have become separated from a tallit possess no sanctity. However, out of respect for their mitzvah we don't discard them in a disrespectful fashion. Some people bury them, and others discard them in a respectful manner, wrapping them to avoid contact with refuse. Others recycle them for another mitzvah - they use the strings as a bookmark in a sefer (book of Torah).

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 21:1; Mishneh Berurah 21:8)

Have a great day,
