Carpet recycling is both good for the environment and the economy – saving natural resources and landfill space as well as creating jobs.

Carpet recovery is good business. 

South Carolina is a leader for carpet recycling in the Southeast – with several hundred million pounds of carpet recycling capacity. The S.C. Carpet Recovery Coalition (CRC) was established in 2013 to help increase carpet recycling and encourage post-consumer carpet recycling by cities, counties, and businesses.
