Carpet

rolls of old carpetingIf you recently removed carpeting from your home, you have a number of options to dispose of it.  Bro-Tex, a textile recycling company in Saint Paul, gives you the opportunity to recycle your unwanted carpeting at a number of locations around the Twin Cities metropolitan area.  To recycle your carpet with Bro-Tex, it must meet the following requirements:

  • Carpet must be dry, clean, and debris-free
  • Carpet and carpet padding must be separated
  • Carpet must be rolled or bagged; rolls should be a maximum of six feet in length and should be tied with string or twine -- no duct tape.

Not accepted:  

  • rubber-backed, carpet tile or other rigid flooring
  • carpet scraps or trimmings
  • carpet with tack strips, nails or staples

This carpet will be recycled into new carpet, plastic parts such as drain pipes, acoustic matting or absorbant products for spills. The following businesses have a drop-off location for carpet and carpet padding to be recycled by Bro-Tex.
