When you are renovating your home there is often the problem of what to do with your old carpet. Carpets are often made of polyproylene or nylon and therefore take thousands of years to decompose in a land fill. Saving your old carpets from the landfill can make a significant contribution to reducing the total amount of waste that you produce.
Luckily there are ways that New Jersey residents can reuse or recycle their old carpets instead of throwing them in the nearest dumpster.
If the carpet is in good condition, you can donate it to Habitat for Humanity for use in one of their projects. They will accept both carpet and the carpet padding underlay. You should contact your local Habitat for Humanity office to find out if they are accepting carpet donations at the time. Depending on the stage of their home renovation projects they may or may not be in need of carpet for their work.
They offer collection services for second-hand carpet from commercial customers.
You can contact Carpetcycle and arrange for them to either pick up your already rolled up carpet from your business or they will come to your business and pull up the unwanted carpet for you.
There is a charge for these services. Contact Carpetcycle for more details.
