Did you realize over 4.9 billion pounds of carpet are thrown into landfills every year? This is equivalent to 13 trillion BTU's of raw energy, or enough to power 106 thousand homes for an entire year! It is also equivalent to 108 million gallons of gasoline or enough gas to drive 2.7 billion miles!
With today's compliance issues, as well as our own elevated awareness of environmental issues, we realize that disposal of your old flooring is no longer as simple as ripping it up and throwing it in a dumpster.
At LVR Commercial Flooring, we feel it is our responsibility to offer our customers a complete flooring recycling and reclamation program as an essential part of our flooring project services.
LVR Commercial Flooring is proud to be an affiliate of the Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE). The mission of CARE is to facilitate the carpet industry lead initiative to find market driven solutions to the diversion of post-consumer carpet from landfills to meet the time sensitive goals of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for Carpet Stewardship.
Our reclamation program is a completely environmentally friendly service. Let us help you with alleviating the hassles that can be associated with environmentally responsible disposal. Our program is flexible enough to accept and recycle virtually all carpet materials, as well as any fibers from any mill.
