Anyone Interested in Carpet Recycling?
« on: October 13, 2011, 09:04:26 am »
did you know that each year 500,000 tonnes of carpet waste is buried in UK landfills. Increasingly businesses, householders and local authorities are looking for better alternatives, but new technologies and markets for carpet are needed to ensure that this growing demand for carpet recycling services can be met.

Carpet Recycling UK is a not for profit membership organisation which works to increase the recycling of carpets across the UK.

We know what is going on within the industry, in terms of new technology, new trials, figures and facts, so if this is something you think you may be interested in please keep up to date with what we are doing by following CarpetRecycling on twitter and we can answer any questions you may have!

So if I had an old carpet, where's the best place to take it locally where it can be recycled ?

Hi Sasquartch,

Our member recyclers are mainly after bulky waste carpet, so I think the first step would be to contact your local authority and see if they offer a recycling service.

Freecycle is also good for Carpet re use. If it is in fairly good condition, people will actually reuse it in their homes, or alternativley people will use it as a pond liner.

If you wanted to contact some of our recycler members, you can find their details through this link (Which will take you to a PDF)

I hope this helps,

any more questions.. just ask!
