Carpet and carpet pad recycling is now avilable at Benton Crossing Landfill.
Carpet must be delivered dry and free of debris, and loaded into the recycling container.
The cost is $5 per load for carpet that is recycled, and $74/ton for carpet disposed of as Construction and Demolition waste. This creates tremendous savings for the effort.
