Members report record recycling figures - Carpet Recycling

New figures show that almost 6000 tonnes of carpet waste were diverted from landfill by seven of Carpet Recycling UK's manufacturing members this year. This represents a diversion rate of 85% and a 50% increase on 2010 figures for members' industrial waste.

A record breaking 4983 tonnes, of a total 5983 of the waste carpet offcuts were recycled to recover valuable fibres. The remaining 1035 tonnes were used for energy recovery; the high calorific value embedded in carpets makes them ideal for energy generation.

The seven manufacturers who submitted figures are Abingdon Flooring, Brintons, Cormar Carpets, Forbo, Milliken, Brockway and Penthouse Carpets. “Its a tremendous leap forward and a great achievement for the group” said Laurance Bird, director of CRUK, “All of these companies are expected to reach zero waste to landfill by 2012 with the infrastructure investments they have in place.”

Carpet Recycling UK drives innovation in end-of-life solutions for carpets.
