Increasingly, businesses, householders and local authorities are looking for better alternatives for the recycling of unwanted carpet materials. Brintons are proud to now be a member of Carpet Recycling UK, a not for profit membership association working to increase the recycling of carpet waste across the UK.
Alongside other industry leaders, Brintons supports Carpet Recycling UK as a ‘Core Funder’ fostering the development of voluntary producer responsibility for carpets throughout their lifecycle. Carpet Recycling UK help to ensure that the growing demand for carpet recycling services is met. Through innovation in end-of-life solutions for carpets they envisage a world where 100% of all carpet waste is diverted from landfill through either re-use or recycling.
In 2017 the volume of carpet diverted from landfill rose to an impressive 42%. This 7% increase on the previous year sets a good precedent to suggest a continuation in diverting carpet waste as more companies enroll in support of CRUK.
We are fully committed to striving to improve the products and services we offer to all of our customers while minimising any negative environmental impacts or safety risks. We look forward to working with Carpet Recycling UK to further improve our efforts.
