Boost for carpet recycling body

Three in four carpet buyers would pay for the retailer to take back their waste carpet, according to a survey.

Of 472 Carpet Foundation members surveyed at the Harrogate Flooring Show, 74% said they would pay for the service.

“This high figure is very encouraging and would be a significant help in diverting greater waste carpet volumes from landfill,” said a spokeswoman for Axion Consulting, which manages industry-backed association Carpet Recycling UK.

“We have expanded our UK-wide specialist recycler network from six to 24 in the last two years, so retailers can find an alternative, cost-saving disposal route to landfill.”
