The VPS Program is market-based and designed to accept and manage all applicable post-consumer carpet, regardless of polymer type or primary materials or construction. The Program provides financial assistance to qualified U.S. Sorters who divert post-consumer carpet.
Funded by the Carpet and Rug Institute, CARE manages the program. CARE has diverted over 5 billion lbs. of carpet from landfills since its inception in 2002.
