Beaulieu Group LLC has partnered with Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE) to introduce its reclaim and recycling initiative for commercial broadloom and carpet tile styles under BOLYU’s react program. React, utilizes CARE’s vast recycling network. At the carpet’s end of life, BOLYU, with the help of CARE, would find a suitable carpet recycling center near our customer. At the recycling center the customer’s old carpet would be mechanically separated into carpet face fiber and carpet backing. The face fiber can be recycled into new nylon based products (including fiber for more carpet and automotive parts) and the backing system can be recycled into carpet pad, furniture battings, reinforcing filler for concrete and/or road underlayment. By working through CARE’s network, we can easily locate nearby CARE certified recyclers. This allows us to not only be certain we that we are using approved recyclers but also recyclers that are close to the jobsite. By using local recyclers we are able to help reduce the cost and carbon footprint of the recycle project. In 2012, CARE’s network of recyclers diverted 351 million lbs of carpet.
