The Carpet Recyclers Opens Two Facilities

The Carpet Recyclers has opened two facilities — one in Oakland, Calif., and one in La Mirada, Calif. — to recycle carpet. The facilities, which obtained exclusive rights in the Western United States to use state-of-the-art carpet recovery equipment, can process 400,000 pounds of carpet daily. The company notes that 3.2 percent of all waste entering California landfills is old carpet, totaling 1.3 billion pounds.
