Milliken Launches Carpet Landfill Diversion Program

Spartanburg-based performance materials, chemicals and floor covering manufacturer Milliken & Company has launched its Carpet Landfill Diversion Program to help its customers reduce the amount of used carpet sent to landfills.

The program involves determining the optimal method of recovery, offering alternatives including recycling old carpet into new carpet, downcycling it into other products and donating it to charity. Customers should contact Milliken to receive a quote for landfill diversion based on evaluation of an 8-inch-by-8-inch carpet sample to determine the best method of recovery. Milliken will provide a quote 72 hours after receipt of samples and online quote requests.

The program follows all guidelines of the Carpet America Recovery Effort (C.A.R.E.), of which Milliken is a founding member and board member.
