Cormar Carpets wins Longstanding Support Award for Carpet Recycling


Updated. 2.August.2016

Cormar Longstanding Award

Cormar Carpets has won the ‘Longstanding Support Award’ from Carpet Recycling UK for their strong commitment to carpet recycling and sustainability.

 

Each year 400,000* tonnes of carpet waste is buried in UK landfill. Increasingly, businesses, householders and local authorities are looking for better alternatives for the recycling of unwanted carpet materials. Carpet Recycling UK help ensure that the growing demand for carpet recycling services is met.  Carpets are made from natural and synthetic fibres, which still have a value once the carpet is no longer wanted; they can be used in a wide range of applications from sports surfaces to insulation.

 

The third Carpet Recycling UK awards ceremony recently took place, recognising member organisations and individuals for particular innovation, best practice and commitment in the past year. Awards were presented by the guest host, celebrity designer Oliver Heath.

 

“As a leading UK Carpet Manufacturer we need to protect the environment and feel strongly that excess carpet waste should be recycled rather than end up in landfill,” said Robert Barker, finance director at Cormar Carpets. “We have been a core funder of Carpet recycling UK since 2009, and we are delighted to have won this award.”

 

Carpet Recycling UK is a not for profit membership association working to increase the recycling of carpet waste across the UK.
 

*Based on the Carpet Recycling UK annual survey in 2013 which collected self-reported figures from carpet recyclers throughout the UK and an estimate of incineration of carpets by local authorities.
