Millions of pounds of commercial flooring diverted from landfills

CarpetLast year Resource Commercial Flooring Network members diverted an astonishing 6.8 million pounds of carpet and carpet waste from landfills.

By reducing and sometimes eliminating waste in carpet projects, through their ReSource initiative, Ecolect™ (their national material collection and recycle program), members promote sustainable business practices. They recommend effective, sustainable methods for reclaiming material, diverting it from landfills across the country. 

ReSource members diverted 1.7 million pounds of carpet waste from landfills in 2008. This year´s goal is 5 million pounds. Given what they accomplished in 2009, that goal definitely needs to be raised!
