Carpet Recycling

According to the California Carpet Stewardship Program, more than 350 million pounds of carpet are buried in California landfills every year, where it stays for centuries without breaking down. But, there is a better way: recycling! Recycling carpet saves natural resources, conserves landfill space, and reduces dependency on fossil fuels. Old carpet can be recycled and made into useful new products like traffic signs, insulation, new carpet, and carpet padding. If you’re replacing your carpet at home, here are the steps you can take to ensure your old carpet stays out of landfills and is recycled instead:

  • Keep it dry.
  • Keep it debris-free - Remove tack strips, nails, trash and dirt.
  • Prepare carpet - Cut carpet into manageable section, separate carpet from pad and roll carpet. Roll, stack or fold carpet pad, and stack carpet tile.
  • Drop off carpet (please no area rugs) for recycling (for a fee) at EDCO's CDI Recycling Facility.
