Revolution Recovery is equipped with analytical tools to identify different grades (polypropylene, nylon 6, etc.) of commercial and residential carpet. Until recently, carpet recycling has been cumbersome and cost prohibitive. Now, the processing has improved, the steps have been streamlined, the value of the material has increased, and more carpet is being recycled than ever.
Carpet Recycling Process
The carpet is baled by type and hauled to processors where it is cleaned, shredded or stripped and processed into pellets. The pellets are used to make new plastic and carpet products.
