Carpet Recycling UK drives innovation in end-of-life solutions for carpets. The vision is of a strong and diverse carpet recycling industry which recovers all carpet waste using best environmental technologies.

Managed by Axion Consulting, the scheme is working towards a world where 100% of all carpet waste is diverted from landfill through re use and recycling.

Carpet Recycling UK’s main aim is to increase the diversion of carpets from landfill, by:

  • Finding new end uses for recycled carpet.
  • Facilitating relationships between people who want to recycle carpet and recyclers.
  • Lobbying for a favourable policy environment.
  • Providing practical support for carpet recyclers.
  • Research and development.
  • Disseminating results at conferences, trade events and shows.

Carpet Recycling UK’s achievements to date:

  • Increased landfill diversion rate of waste carpet from 2% to 10% in 2 years.
  • Helped to divert 137,020 tonnes of carpet waste from landfill to recycling or energy recovery. This is equivalent to 8472 football pitches.
  • Expanded its specialist carpet re-use, recycling and energy recovery outlets from 6 to 24.
  • Accessed external public funding of £120,000 to research high-value opportunities for material recovery.
  • Increased membership to 63 companies across the carpet value chain and in waste recovery – with core funding coming from 11 UK carpet manufacturer companies and a market leading distributor.
  • Lobbied government agencies such as DEFRA and WRAP to increase awareness of the voluntary producer responsibility position being taken by the carpet industry.
  • Provided a lead role on carpets within the Flooring Resource Efficiency Plan funded by WRAP and BRE Trust
