Mohawk Expands Carpet Recycling Program into Residential Market

Calhoun, GA, April 23, 2021-Mohawk Industries announces that the ReCover Carpet Recycling Program will expand into the residential market. Already an established program within the commercial market, ReCover now provides sustainable carpet solutions to specialty retailers and their customers.

Addressing a growing interest in sustainability, the ReCover program is a paid service that facilitates the recycling of used carpet from any manufacturer to repurpose it back into new carpet, padding and other useful products. By doing so, ReCover reduces flooring waste and provides a convenient and easy alternative for carpet recycling. Since the inception of ReCover, 159 million pounds of carpet has been diverted from landfills. 

The ReCover carpet recycling program is one of Mohawk’s many sustainability initiatives. The company also operates a third-party certified reclamation facility. Its Summerville, Georgia facility recycles approximately seven billion plastic bottles per year, equivalent to 20% of all bottles in the domestic post-consumer market, to convert them into carpet.
