Starnet sets carpet recycling goal of 50M pounds

Home Press Release Starnet sets carpet recycling goal of 50M pounds

Lancaster, Pa. — Starnet Worldwide Commercial Flooring Partnership’s Reclamation Program has established a goal of recycling 50 million pounds of reclaimed commercial carpet by 2015.

The program is in conjunction with Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE,) which helps companies recycle their used carpets. 

Starnet will take care of the entire process—from removal to compliance to certification. The program can contribute to LEED accreditation on renovation projects.

Starnet said it will reclaim any type of commercial carpet anywhere in the country and ship it to dedicated reclamation centers, therefore bypassing landfills.

 Some fibers are recycled in a “closed loop” process that transforms used carpet fibers into brand new nylon carpet yarn. Other fibers and backings are recycled for use in new consumer and industrial parts or converted from waste to energy.
  
Starnet said its goal of reclaiming 50 million pounds of commercial carpet by 2015 is not a stretch and its environmental impact is measurable.

 Since the program began in 2006, Starnet has reclaimed 8,859,124 square yards of used carpet weighing nearly 40 million pounds.
