Q2 2022 California Carpet Stewardship Program results for recycled output and carpet collection were strong. The recycling rate hit 31.7%, slightly below Q1, but well above the 27% target for the year. However, carpet sales are expected to continue to decline in the second half of the year. Increased transportation costs along with the continued COVID Action Plan Subsidies and reduced carpet sales resulted in expenses exceeding assessments collected. As a result, the Program will see an aggressive assessment increase go into effect on January 1, 2023; details are forthcoming, pending CalRecycle’s approval.
