Carpet waste in the UK is a huge problem. Over 130,000 tonnes of carpet in the UK is put into landfill each year, and the accompanying cost is enormous.
We plan to reduce this number significantly by recycling all waste carpets and underlay, to reuse in other products.
Whether you're a carpet shop with hundreds of tonnes of waste, or simply someone who wants to recycle an old carpet then please contact us now. Any contribution goes a long way.
Why Should You Recycle?
It is becoming more and more important that we recycle. Less than 2% of carpet waste in the UK gets recycled, the rest is put straight into the ground. The volume is too shocking to comprehend. But now, with our help, you can do your part. There is no minimum or maximum amount that we will take.
It's also much cheaper than putting carpet into landfill. The cost of skips, land, and time far outweigh the price we offer to take it off your hands. So you can save time and money while doing something impactful.
How Does It Work?
During this process, we truly want to be transparent. So how does it work? Well, first we receive the old carpet from customers, other carpet shops, as well as our own waste. Then we sort it into categories. These categories are synthetics, wool, and exhibition (we also take any cardboard and polythene wrap). Once the carpet has been sorted they are then placed in our state-of-the-art balers. These balers allow us to compress and pack the carpet into a range of sizes. These bales are then put in large machines that intelligently separate all the materials to be reused in other products. All the carpets we recycle go towards creating high-quality horse riding surfaces.
We have been in the carpet and flooring industry for over 25 years now, and in that time we've been behind the scenes and watched the numbers become reality. That is what drove us to take the initiative and make the change that we need.
This is an idea we have been formulating for a long time, but finally, Kenilworth Carpets is now the only certified carpet recycling service in the Midlands, which has forever been overrun by the volume of landfill waste.
Now we can safely say that is set to change. We sent off our last ever skip, and at the same time said goodbye to a reckless era.
