More than 350 million pounds of carpet are buried in California landfills every years, where it stays for centuries without breaking down. There's a better way: recycling.
Recycling carpet saves natural resources, conserves landfill space, and reduces dependency on fossil fuels.
Old carpet can be recycled and made into useful new products, like traffic signs, insulation, new carpet, and new carpet padding.
In 2010, California passed a Carpet Stewarship law to increase carpet recycling. Since then, over 100 million pounds of carpet have been diverted from our landfills and recycled. By working together, we can do more!
This program is supported by Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE). CARE works to create market-based solutions to increase carpet recycling and divert carpet from landfill.

"The program Carpet Recycling in California has been very efficient. We've saved tons of pulled-up carpet from landfills and the material is being recycled. Currently, Robinson's is the only carpet recycling center in California located at a flooring retailer's store. We are committed to being good stewards of the environment."
As of this writing, Robinson's Interiors is the only retail facility in California to recycle carpet. It's important to be good stewards of the environment and to be of service to the community. So we worked hard to get this certification.
Please do bring your used carpet to our facility. There's no charge so you'll save yourself the dump fees.
