C&D Recycling: Carpet

Construction & Demolition (C&D) materials are generated during construction, remodeling, building repair, cleanup, or demolition.

C&D contains many different types of materials, most of which are recyclable at facilities listed in this section.

That's valuable oil you are walking on!

Did you know that carpet is made primarily from petroleum? That means just like other plastics, you can recycle it. The locations listed below will accept your carpet for recycling. Old carpet can be manufactured into new carpeting or carpet backing.

Reduce your carpet waste

If you're replacing or installing new carpet, consider using carpet squares instead of large sheets. That way, if part of the carpet gets stained, you can replace just that square. Good news for all parents!
