- Instead, if your carpet is in good condition, try selling it! Advertise in local papers or on community noticeboards.
- Or donate it! Give it to a charity shop, school or jumble sale.
- Furniture re-use groups will accept clean unwanted carpets.
- Local gardening groups may also be interested, as carpets make good mulch.
Can it be recycled?
Check with your local council. Some recycling centres accept carpets, mats or rugs for recycling but services vary across the country.
