Carpet Recycling LLC employs a multi-stage recycling process to recycle ALL post consumer nylon carpet. Carpet is sorted at our facility in New Jersey. All nylon carpet is then forwarded for processing. Carpets made of any non-nylon materials are treated as trash and disposed of by commercial means. Carpet Recycling LLC will incur the costs for disposal of all non-recyclable elements of our feedstock.
The recycling technology employed is based on a proprietary process to reclaim a highly pure feed stream of face fibers from nylon carpet destined for landfills. The backing materials which represent approx. 45% of the weight of the carpet are disposed of through commercial means and those costs for disposal are incurred by Carpet Recycling. Recovered Nylon has applications in the automotive industry and is also used to make new carpet and synthetic lumber.
