What do you do with old carpeting?

How to Recycle Old Carpeting

Want something better to do with your old carpet than throw it in the dump? A company called Carpet America Recovery Effort, or CARE, has worked in carpet diversion for six years. The joint industry-government effort works to increase the amount of recycling and reuse of post-consumer carpet and reduce the amount headed to our already-overcrowded landfills. The company passed its one-billion pound mark with carpet diversion in 2007. To find carpet reclamation partners in your area, click here.

Are you looking for ways how to save money? Recycling is on the minds of many, especially with today being earth day. Today's topic is, recycling car batteries. The majority are concerned with what is going to happen within the midst of the emerging wise car batteries that are lithium; concerned with how to properly dispose of them anyway. On a light note there really is nothing to worry about yet. We recycle 99% of the lead in old auto batteries, so I am sure we will come up with a way to properly and efficiently recycle individual's car batteries also.
