Consolidated Carpet has surpassed its goal for 2010, diverting 1,059,284 pounds of used materials from landfills as a part of its ConServe Reclamation Program.
Since the 1980s, Consolidated Carpet has maintained its goal of averting material from landfills and supporting environmentally conscious practices of reuse. Consolidated Carpet has partnered with the industry’s leading manufacturers to assist in the collection process of used carpet to supply feed stock for some of the most innovative recycling programs in the flooring business. It is the third consecutive year that the company has surpassed its goal of diverting over 1,000,000 pounds of materials.
Through the ConServe carpet recovery program, a renewed means of use is provided for anywhere from several hundred to several thousands of yards that would have been disposed in a non-environmentally sound manner. Consolidated Carpet, with its ConServe Reclamation Program, serves as a member of the Carpet America Recovery Effort which aims to achieve an objective of 40% landfill diversion by the year 2012.
The ConServe Program also donates used flooring to charitable organizations such as the YMCA in Mamaroneck, New York and the Nazareth House in Downtown Manhattan. In addition, Consolidated Carpet recently donated linoleum flooring to the Pediatric Oncology treatment/family room at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Paterson, NJ. Consolidated Carpet also donated 6,000 yards of carpeting as well as flooring materials for the rebuilding of seven firehouses in New Orleans, following Hurricane Katrina.
As one of the nation’s largest full-service floor covering contractors, Consolidated Carpet leads the industry in environmentally conscious programs and is committed to providing innovative sustainable and reclamation services on every project.
