Shaw’s carpet recycling facility successfully processes nylon, polyester

Home Categories Carpet Shaw’s carpet recycling facility successfully processes nylon, polyester

Dalton—Shaw has enhanced its robust carpet reclamation and recycling program with the opening of its new Evergreen Ringgold facility, which can recycle nylon and polyester fiber. The investment of more than $20 million in carpet recycling illustrates the company’s continued commitment to converting what has historically been seen as waste into a resource. Shaw will create at least 70 full-time jobs as the facility reaches full capacity.

Shaw will retire its Evergreen Augusta facility Sept. 1 in favor of new technology that better meets current and future market needs.

“Shaw continues to innovate and expand our portfolio of carpet recycling solutions,” said Vance Bell, chairman and CEO of Shaw. “Evergreen Ringgold represents a significant step forward and is enhanced by what we’ve learned over the past decade at Evergreen Augusta.”

Located in what was previously Shaw Plant 37 (a rug distribution center), Evergreen Ringgold began operations in May and has successfully processed nylon and polyester fibers showcasing opportunities for previously untapped markets for recycled material.
