Can Old Carpeting be Recycled?

Even though your carpet has reached the end of its life in your home, that doesn't mean it can't be repurposed to create new products. Old carpeting can be recycled and used to create new carpet, as well as plastic parts for auto interiors and engines, industrial flooring, and even parking barriers.

Carpet is basically made up of plastics, which means the main components are complex hydrocarbons - substances that come from fossil fuels. Since coal and natural gas are limited resources, it's especially important to conserve these fuels by recycling carpet rather than using up the earth's precious supply of fuel to create new carpet.

Recycling your old, unwanted carpet offers two primary advantages over putting it out with the trash. First, carpet manufacturers won't have to consume as much energy or raw materials like water and fuel. Second, recycling prevents all of that old carpeting (and its hydrocarbons) from ending up in America's landfills. When a carpet is brought to a recycling center, it is broken down into its raw components so it can be reused in new products. A common raw material carpet creates is plastic resin which is reused in many household products, including new carpet!

If you’re not sure how to go about recycling your carpet on your own, give 1800-GOT-JUNK? a call.

Can You Throw Carpet in the Dumpster?

If you have smaller amounts of old carpet to get rid of, you might be able to throw it in the dumpster. However, it’s not the best way to deal with removing old carpet. Check with your local municipality to see if they offer carpet removal pick up—you may need to transport it to the dump or recycling facility on your own.

What happens to carpet when it’s gets to the landfill?

While there are carpets and rugs that are made of natural fibers, many are made up of materials like nylon, polyester, and urethane foam. These substances don’t break down naturally, which means that they can end up sitting in landfills for years. As they sit the landfill, the chemicals used to make the carpet can release toxins into the air and pollute the water and soil.

This is why it’s so important to recycle carpet when possible. When you call 1800-GOT-JUNK?, we’ll handle your carpet recycling for you. We’ll pick up your old carpet, load it into our truck, and ensure it gets recycled or properly disposed of.
