More than 300 million pounds of carpet are buried in California landfills every year, where it stays for centuries without breaking down. But there is a better way: recycling.
Recycling carpet saves natural resources, conserves landfill space, and reduces dependency on fossil fuels.
Old carpet can be recycled and made into useful new products, like traffic signs, insulation, new carpet and carpet padding.
In 2010 California passed a Carpet Stewardship law to increase carpet recycling. Since then over 100 million pounds of carpet have been diverted from our landfills and recycled. By working together, we can do more!
This program is supported by Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE). CARE works to create market-based solutions to increase carpet recycling and divert carpet from landfill.
Thank you for recycling!
