Carpet Recycling

Carpet Recycling

It is estimated that since carpet recycling was established in 2008 there has been over 709,000 tonnes of carpet waste from landfill to recycling or energy recovery in the UK. This is equivalent to 43,846 football pitches.

Usel is currently working in partnership with Belfast City Council and Mid and East Antrim to recycle carpet.  It is estimated that 7,000 tonnes of carpet are sent to landfill every year in Northern Ireland.  The process being trialled would result in 100% diversion rate from landfill and 100% of the carpet being recycled.

One popular use for the recycled product is into the equine market across UK and Ireland.
