Can my old carpet flooring be recycled?

One of the most important things about your new carpet installation is removing and disposing of old carpeting. Along with that responsibility comes the question of whether the old flooring is recyclable.

We understand that recycling is essential for many homeowners, and if you're one of them, we'd like to help. Here are some facts about carpet recycling that could give you more information about the process.

Recycling carpet floors

Carpet rarely breaks down in landfills because they contain many components and chemical markers that degrade differently. However, almost all carpeting is recyclable, including your carpet in Wheat Ridge, CO, and Centennial, CO.

Issues can arise because there is a lack of facilities to properly recycle these floors, leading to more waste than recycling. In these cases, it pays to thrift or upcycle your pieces.

Choosing another route

If you don't live near a recycling facility, consider sending your old carpeting off to a charitable organization that builds houses for others. If your flooring is in decent shape, these organizations can refurbish it and put it to good use.

There are many other ways to use your old carpeting as well. Our carpet store offers many ideas that could help you find a way to get rid of your old flooring, so be sure to contact us to ask about them.
