Carpet Recycling Initiative

12 Jul 2022 by Tarkett

Tarkett partner with Squarefoot in India to launch a carpet recycling initiative

How to recycle used flooring when it comes to the end of its life? Often covered in glue, bits of concrete and other chemical residues from years of use... the answer is not so simple! And another challenge is : how to re-use this recycled materials to transform waste into valuable resources? It’s one challenge we’re rising to: we are happy to announce the launch of a new carpet recycling initiative in India with our Channel Partner SquareFoot.

Carpet Recycling Initiative Carpet Recycling Initiative

We offer our customers to collect on their renovation jobsites the used carpet tiles and to recycle both the backing and the yarn. The backing material is upcycled in the automobile and construction industries, while the yarn is used to make recycled paper bags (as you can see in the picture). When others see rubbish, we see an opportunity to turn waste into valuable, reusable materials. This is another step forward in our circular economy strategy.

Please contact us to learn more about this new service available in India! Tarkett Asia is currently working on extending this service to more Asian countries in the coming years.
