CARE increases carpet diversion by 490%

Apr '11
Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE) members diverted 338 million pounds of carpet from the landfill in 2010, an increase of 9 percent over 2009. Of the carpet diverted, more than 271 million pounds was recycled back into carpet and other consumer products. In addition, in 2010 CARE members achieved the new benchmark of two billion pounds of carpet diverted from the landfill since CARE was founded in 2002.

These results were presented at the organization's Ninth Annual Conference held April 26 through April 28 at the Amelia Island Plantation, Amelia Island, Florida. "CARE members achieved the nine percent increase in carpet diversion and a ten percent increase in recycling, continuing year-over-year growth" said Frank Hurd, CARE Board Chairman. He noted that CARE's nationwide network of carpet recyclers increased to a total of 98 in 2010. "Since 2002, CARE has increased carpet diversion by 490%. We are very proud of our members' achievements in 2010," he said.

"CARE had an outstanding year in 2010, and we are actively engaged in negotiating a new Memorandum of Understanding, to take effect in 2012 that we plan to sign before the end of 2011. "On behalf of CARE, I thank all of CARE's stakeholders - government, recycling entrepreneurs, non-governmental organizations and the carpet industry - for their participation in the MOU negotiations and for their support of CARE," said CARE Executive Director Georgina Sikorski.
