Flooring reclamation

The Environmental Challenge

According to the U.S. EPA, approximately 4.6 billion pounds of carpet enters the solid waste stream in the U.S. each year.

The DFS Commercial Response

Through our partnership with INVISTA we support the industry's most progressive and successful carpet recycling program, the first and only nationwide carpet reclamation program that takes in all types of carpet and is certified by an independent third-party organization, Scientific Certification Systems (SCS).

We can provide a certificate of reclamation which guarantees your carpet will not be sent to a landfill. Regardless of face fiber, backing type or manufacturer, we can recycle your carpet and ensure it is re-used in products such as auto parts, engineering plastics, sod reinforcement, carpet cushion, and carpet backing.

To date, this program has collected and recycled more than 100 million pounds of used carpet and has saved over 300,000 cubic yards of landfill space.

To ensure that carpet is properly disposed of on your next project, include a reclamation specification as part of your total carpet flooring or construction specification.
