Landfill Diversion Program
​Continuing our heritage of over a century of environmental stewardship, and our "No Carpet to Landfill Pledge", established in 2002, Milliken is pleased to offer a variety of new programs to support landfill diversion. To receive a quote, complete the form and email us the finalized application. In addition to the application, a physical sample of the carpet being removed sent to the address provided below will be required. We'll contact you within one business day of receipt of the application, and within 72 hours of receipt of physical sample with an official quote. If you have any questions, you may email us at millikencarpet@milliken.com or call our customer concierge service at 1.877.432.6360.
Why is it Good?
​​Diverting carpet from landfill is good for the environment, good for the economy and good for humanity. 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 most carpet is not biodegradable, therefore 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.

What happens to my carpet?
​​There are different avenues the carpet can take to prevent it from going to landfill. Some of the alternatives include but not limited to recycled into new carpet, down cycled into other products, donated to non-profit organizations and sent to waste-to-energy facilities. Our partners will work closely with national care affiliates to determine the most economical and feasible way to prevent the carpet from landfill based on face fiber, backing type and carpet conditions. Actual method of landfill diversion will not be known until the quote process is complete. Sending carpet to landfill is not an environmentally friendly or free option and there is a cost associated with disposing of the carpet to landfill.
Services Offered
Trailer Drop off - Long Term
Instead of renting dumpsters and disposing of your carpet into the landfill, call us to have one of our partners provide you with a trailer. The trailer will be dropped at the jobsite for loading and will hold between 4,000 and 5,000 yards of carpet, which would fill about three, 30-yard dumpsters. The trailer will arrive and remain at the job site until all carpet is placed on the trailer and ready to be removed. The carpet must meet the receiving requirements found at the end of this document. If receiving requirements are not meet, the client may be responsible for the costs associated with repairing the issue.
 
Live Load - Short Term
Our partners will be able to provide pick up services for your smaller carpet jobs. The trailer will come to the job site, pick up the carpet and leave all within the same day. If the job takes more than a single day, additional charges will apply. There will be an hourly labor charge added to your invoice if the partner’s staff must load the carpet. All carpet must meet the receiving requirements found at the end of this document. If receiving requirements are not followed the client may be responsible for the costs associated with repairing the issue.
