Carpet Recycling UK was named winner of a Resource Revolution Award in the Landfill Diversion category, in recognition of its achievements in finding alternative uses for waste carpet.

CRUK Co-ordinator Jane Gardner commented: “We're delighted and very proud to have won this award, which honours the efforts, support and commitment across the entire supply chain to drive our initiative forward. In providing the core funding for Carpet Recycling UK, the manufacturers wanted to demonstrate producer responsibility for their products and their input is vital to our success.”

The judges praised CRUK for bringing businesses together to progress carpet recovery, saying: “Their entry made it obvious they were tackling a tough issue head-on while delivering significant benefits on the ground.”
