Whenever you remove old carpeting from your home you will have to do something with it. Most people will simply throw it all away, and leave it as a problem for someone else at the landfill. Instead of throwing your old carpet away, why not recycle it? Recycling old carpet isn't really a particularly difficult matter, though some of the methods may require a bit of creativity and imagination on your part though.
While there are only four options listed here, that is by no means the end to your options for recycling old carpet. This is one of those materials where the only real limit that you can expect is the limit imposed by your imagination. Just remember that you really should check with your local authorities to ensure that you do not inadvertently do anything that is against the law, or prohibited in some way or another.
