Continuing a Sustainable Heritage: The Milliken Carpet Landfill Diversion Program

Sustainability.jpg

At Milliken, we are continuing our heritage of over a century of environmental stewardship. We are committed to preserving the beauty of the world around us through sustainable practices, and are continually looking for new and innovative ways to better the world where we work and live.

One way we display our commitment to sustainable practices is through the Milliken Carpet Landfill Diversion Program.  Here’s how we are making a difference.

• Milliken embraces our social and environmental responsibility to divert carpet from the landfill, and strives to provide easy and simple ways for our customers to divert their carpet. 

• For every 250,000 yards of carpet that is diverted from landfill, we are saving over 5,500 cubic yards of landfill space. 

• Carpet is estimated to make up 2% of volume of materials in landfills, and since most carpet is not biodegradable, it will not breakdown. 

​• When you divert carpet from landfill with Milliken, you can be assured that we will follow the Carpet America Recovery Effort (C.A.R.E) guidelines.
