Carpets

Reducing, reusing or recycling old carpets.


Reduce

  • Spruce up you carpet by using a carpet cleaner.

Reuse

  • If the carpet is in good condition, sell it through advertising in your local newspaper or on community noticeboards.
  • Check to see if your local charity shop can make use of it.
  • Offer it on your local Freecycle or Freegle network.
  • Cut it up into smaller sizes and use them as mats for the shed, back door or in the garage.
  • Use old carpet as a pond liner (under the waterproof membrane).
  • Use it on top of your compost heap to insulate it in winter and then cover with a waterproof sheet or lid.
