Post-consumer carpet can be recycled and made into a variety of products, including more carpet. Pictured are products from Reliance, Interface, Carpet Cycle and Sierra Mat & Rubber.

More than 340 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.

To learn more about products using recycled carpet material and the Double GreenTM designation, contact Market Development associate Mike Tinney to request a presentation.
