Are you a homeowner, installer or other contractor with used carpet to dispose of? Good news—you can now drop off used carpet for recycling at American Reclamation, Inc., at a reduced rate of $45.00 per tonfor separated loads of residential carpet and foam padding and $92.00 per ton for commercial carpet and loads of mixed residential and commercial carpet and padding. The new service is offered in partnership with Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE), a non-profit organization working to increase the amount of carpet that gets recycled in California.
American Reclamation, Inc. is located at 4560 Doran Street, Los Angeles, CA 90039 and open from 6:00 am to 5:00 pm Mondays through Fridays and 6:00 am to 3:00 pm Saturdays, except the New Years, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. For more information call us toll free at (888) 999-9330 or visit our website www.americanreclamationinc.com. To prepare used carpet for drop-off, it must be dry, free from tack strips, nails and other debris, and separated from the carpet pad. Cut carpet into manageable sections and roll it. Fold carpet padding and drop it off as well.
Or if you would like us to pick up your carpet and padding and you are located in the cities of Burbank, Calabasas, Commerce, Glendale, Los Angeles, Malibu, Montebello, Pasadena, Santa Monica and Vernon as well as unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County, we can rent you a temporary bin or roll-off container for carpet pickup. Call us for current rates.
With more than 350 million pounds discarded each year, used carpet is among the top ten materials in California landfills. But carpet can be recycled into useful products, including new carpet, carpet padding, insulation and even traffic signs! CARE is working to build a network of drop-off locations throughout the state to collect used carpet for recycling. By participating in the program, American Reclamation, Inc.is doing its part to keep carpet out of the landfill.
