Recovinyl Recyclers 2015 List

Carpet recycling-UK

Each year 400,000 tonnes of carpet waste is buried in UK landfill

Carpet Recycling UK is a not for profit membership association working to increase the recycling of carpet waste across the UK
Increasingly, businesses, householders and local authorities are looking for better alternatives for the recycling of unwanted carpet materials. They help ensure that the growing demand for carpet recycling services is met.

Carpets are made from natural and synthetic fibres, which still have a value once the carpet is no longer wanted; they can be used in a wide range of applications from sports surfaces to insulation.

Childrens Scrap

The Children’s S.C.R.A.P. Project is a Registered Charity which collects, stores and distributes clean, safe industrial waste to schools, nurseries, colleges, special needs groups, churches, hospital wards, playgroups, community groups and charitable organisations involved in education.

Membership is available to any group involved in arts, crafts, learning and play and community groups and is offered at an annual membership fee rate which varies depending on the number of children or members involved and how your group is funded.

Payment of the membership fee entitles groups to visit the project and collect materials as often as they need within that year, at no further charge, and gives access to our information/Education Service Workshops.

Workshops: The Children’s Scrap project will run a number of workshops throughout the year. These workshops are designed to educate and produce wonderful ideas.
