Carpet Recycling

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. 

For additional information on the effort that is funding this important recycling effort, visit https://carpetrecovery.org/
