Resources for Local Government Recycling Coordinators
Local government agencies are vital partners for disseminating information on carpet recycling to retailers, transfer stations and the general public. The California Carpet Stewardship Program can provide you with information and resources to empower you to communicate with your constituents with a goal of increasing carpet recycling in your area.

Drop-Off Site Map
CARE’s website has an updated, interactive map of drop-off sites that accept carpet from the public. Opening hours, contact information, and fees charged are included in each listing. Note: It is important to contact the drop-off site before visiting. Some locations may require an appointment and/or proof of residency.
The number of CARE-supported drop-off sites is expected to double in 2016 and the online map is updated frequently. If you would like to set up a carpet recycling drop-off site, please contact: CA@carpetrecovery.org.
