Carpet
Can it be recycled?

Carpets

Check with your local council. Some recycling centres accept carpets, mats or rugs for recycling but services vary across the country.

What else can I do with them?

  • Instead, if your carpet is in good condition, try selling it! Advertise in local papers or on community noticeboards.
  • Or donate it! Give it to a charity shop, school or jumble sale. 
  • Furniture re-use groups will accept clean unwanted carpets.
  • Local gardening groups may also be interested, as carpets make good mulch.
