Circular Polymers (www.circularpolymers.com) has partnered with CLEAR (California Landfill Elimination and Recycling) Carpet Recycling to collect and recycle carpet in California.
Landfill elimination is a key component of our effort to recycle carpet. The management of waste has come a long way in a short time. As recent as the late 1970s, the term landfill was relatively unknown and little attention was paid to what we dumped in them.
What is the best way to handle a commodity that has value but has historically been thrown away? That is what carpet recyclers faces today. Changing the habits of those in the flooring industry is a critical first step.
CLEAR is making carpet recycling as convenient as recycling an empty aluminum can. There is no curbside pick-up of your used carpet and you will not find carpet recycling containers on street corners and other public places…at least, not yet.
Until it hits the mainstream, we ask for your cooperation on doing the right thing and recycle your carpet.
