Carpet tile recycling is a new way of saving yourself a lot of money. Recycled carpet tiles are tiles that have actually been laid before, but most have had minimal wear and we're very careful about which used carpet tiles we sell.
The carpet tile recycling industry has created a market for these very cheap carpet tiles over the last 10-15 years in an attempt to stop uplifted carpet tiles being sent to landfill in their thousands. Because carpet tiles are so hard-wearing means that they are virtually indestructible in landfill, so it's much kinder to the planet to re-sell them to be used again. And the added bonus is that they are then a fraction of the price of a brand new carpet tile.
Because of the cheap price and the huge savings that can be made, the good quality used carpet tiles are always very popular and sell really quickly. But what happens to all the tiles that can't be sold because they're either in a bad condition or not a whole tile.........well, these tiles are often sent to carpet tile recycling processing plants and converted into Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) for use as an igniter for cement kilns. This is very good for the planet and the pocket!
As an added note of interest - Carpet recycling is quite a different process because of the way carpets are manufactured. The pile of a carpet can be taken away from the backing and the separate parts can be processed separately in a carpet recycling plant. The pile is converted back into a yarn and the backing is processed back into new backing. This yarn and backing is then used to make a new recycled carpet. This recycled carpet then becomes a small part of the 'circular economy' which is now becoming the mainstream way of thinking about waste and re-using it. Better to recycle and re-use rather than bin it!
