UGA, CARE Compile Carpet Recovery Report

The Textile Department at the University of Georgia (UGA), Athens, Ga., collaborated with the Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE), Dalton, Ga., to compile statistics on the total amount of carpet waste currently diverted from landfills as part of recycling efforts.


The report covers methods for dealing with recovered carpet such as reuse, recycling or energy purposes. The report also looks at problems encountered in reuse and recycling efforts, as well as successes. In addition, market opportunities for products made using recycled carpet content are discussed.

The report is to be released at CARE's first annual meeting this month. A copy of the report can be obtained at CARE's website, www.carpetrecovery.com.
