If you have carpets and rugs that you don’t need any more, there are lots of options for getting rid of them…
Household recycling collection
Not accepted in household recycling.
Household waste recycling centre (HWRC)
Check to see if your council offers a collection service, or you could take it to your local recycling centre.
What can you do?
Cut your carpet or rug to size and use it to protect your car windscreen from frost
If you are building a garden pond, use old carpet to line it before you put the pond liner in - it protects the liner from sharp stones
