For every 1000 sqft of carpet you recycle with GreenWaste, you are:

  • Keeping 500 lbs. of material out of landfills, 
  • Saving 48 gallons of petroleum oil, 
  • Preventing more than 900 lbs. of CO2 emissions, and
  • Creating local “green” jobs in your community

Carpet and padding must be:

  • Dry and debris free
  • Cut in manageable sections
  • Carpet should be rolled or folded and separate from padding
  • We do not accept area rugs for recycling


Our recycle processing, handling and certification fee is a minimum of $25 per load and will depend on the quantity and condition of the materials you have to be recycled.

We will be more affordable than most area landfills!
