Carpet Recycling UK (CRUK) will be showcasing ten years of resource recovery from waste carpet at the 2018 Harrogate Flooring Show, September 16 to 18. The show aims to support the flooring sector to increase recycling and reuse of these materials, thereby helping to reduce disposal costs.

In its 10th anniversary year, the industry-backed association for recycling and reusing waste carpet reports consistently higher numbers of enquiries from flooring companies to improve their efforts to divert carpet from landfills and to offer recycling services to their customers. Retailers and contractors can join as new members at the show.

“With strong ongoing support from our core funders who are leading the way for sustainability within the carpet value chain, the reuse and recycling of waste carpet across the UK has continued to rise year on year since 2008 when CRUK was founded,” said Laurance Bird, CRUK director. “At this year’s show, we are looking forward to following up conversations with our many enquirers and with more outlets in the North East and South East, we should be able to help more retailers and contractors. It is definitely worth returning to our stand for a chat and to find out which recycling options will work for you based on your geographical location, types of carpet waste and volumes. It also offers an opportunity to find out if compacting waste using a ‘carpet crusher’ is financially feasible.”
