Carpet Rolls from Above

Carpet recovery is a wall-to-wall challenge. This single product alone represents over 1.2% of the national municipal solid waste tonnage.

While many tout the growing practice of converting recovered soda bottles into recycled-content carpet, that carpet is then itself not currently recoverable. Hardly a long-term, sustainable solution.

In fact, in 2010 only 4.5% of carpet was recycled nationwide, regardless of the resin from which it was originally manufactured.
