More than 300 million pounds of carpet is discarded in California landfills every year—carpet that could be recycled into useful new products. The California Carpet Stewardship Program is working to develop markets for recycled post-consumer carpet via grants, technical assistance and promotion.
Post-consumer carpet is recycled by processors into fibers or plastic pellets, which can be used to make a broad range of products, including carpet, carpet tiles, carpet underlayment, and products for the automotive, transportation, and construction industries.
Manufacturers are finding many exciting uses for post consumer recycled carpet as a feedstock in their operations. Contact Product & Market Development Manager Rob Thiess to learn more.
