San Jose, Calif.-based GreenWaste and sister company Zanker Road Resource Management have begun operations of GreenWaste Carpet Recycling. It has established four carpet collection centers in Northern California – three in San Jose and one in Sacramento, according to a news release. It has developed ties with many local carpet vendors as well.
GreenWaste's collection centers accept all types of commercial and residential carpeting, carpet tiles and carpet padding. The company also provides collection trailers at retail carpet stores and carpet installers' warehouses.
GreenWaste Carpet Recycling has established an exclusive relationship for Northern California with The Carpet Recyclers, a carpet processor based in La Mirada, Calif., that separates and recovers every component of residential nylon carpet.
“We are excited to add carpet recycling as a service to continue to maximize diversion from landfills," said Michael Gross, director of sustainability for GreenWaste Recovery.
