Carpetright recycles over 1,590 tonnes of cardboard

carpet rolls


Currently, Carpetright recycle 1,590 tonnes of cardboard, which is made into tubes that the carpet is rolled on to, and 362 tonnes of plastic sheet that’s then used to protect the rolls of carpet that are sent out to stores.

No doubt recycling carpet is also advantageous, but as the Carpet Recycling UK conference found in June 2013; there are many challenges that are faced by the carpet industry. With both logistical and financial issues regarding recycling materials, it’s difficult for most carpet sector companies to be able to recycle.  Fortunately, research is in progress by the Carpet Recycling UK foundation that may help develop recycling schemes in the future.
