Cullingford Carpets & Interiors produced a staggering 100 tons of carpet waste in 2014 and with ever increasing disposal costs decided they needed to look for an alternative method of disposal for all their waste – ideally in a more environmentally friendly manner, to cut down on their disposal skip costs and eliminate their waste going to landfill.
Cullingfords contacted Kenburn, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of recycling manchines, who work with Carpet Recycling UK, a waste-to-energy company who utilise the waste to power concrete kilns maximising the waste stream and its very high calorific value.
The Directors of Cullingfords explain that not only are they able to dispose of all their waste to a recycling company but they also have reduced their disposal costs dramatically.
Cullingfords are the first company to install Kenburn Crusher in the south west and although the initial costs to buy the machine were high they will see a return to their investment in less than three years.
In addition, Cullingfords are members of Recycling UK and not only re-cycle all their carpet and underlay waste but are associated with a programme to re use vinyl waste which goes to make new vinyl flooring.
So when you buy flooring from Cullingford Carpets & Interiors you can be assured and safe in the knowledge that your old flooring and waste material is 100% guaranteed to be the recycled and not go to landfill.
Cullingford Carpets & Interiors are very green when it comes to waste disposal – no matter what the colour of your carpet!
