Interface ReEntry Carpet Recycling Program

Interface ReEntry Carpet Recycling Program

news image

Asset Flooring Group are proud to be a partner of the Interface ReEntry carpet recycling program.  Carpet has become a top 10 worldwide landfill item. Taking more than 50 years to break down carpet is a growing environmental problem.  In 1994, Interface started revolutionising the way carpet is manufactured and recycled. In fact, Interface invented the world’s first carpet tile recycling program working towards ‘closing the loop’ on the use of non-renewable raw materials and fuel.  Known as ReEntry™, this program has been extended to accept carpet tile from other manufacturers, as well as their own.

ReEntry™ accepts used carpet tiles from all kinds of manufacturers, subject to them being in a condition suitable for recycling or reuse.  If the components of the tile are compatible with the recycling program, the product will be used as postconsumer content in the manufacturing of new carpet tiles. Most vinyl/PVC backed tiles will be compatible for recycling.  If not suitable for recycling, carpet tiles are instead put into a reuse program, where they will be given a second chance at life.  In both cases, the carpet tiles are kept out of landfill and Interface takes responsibility for their end-of-life management.

Asset Flooring Group so far has taken back over 3000m2 of carpet tiles.
