The challenge of deconstructing components of commercial broadloom efficiently is more costly than utilizing new virgin products to manufacture new products. The excessive cost of this processing has resulted in the development of alternative products made from post-consumer broadloom. Waste energy, insulation, and carpet cushion are some of the products that help divert material from landfills. There is typically a cost associated with recycling broadloom products that is quoted on a project to project basis.
