Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, March 14, 2012 3A Program aims to recycle carpet Installing a new carpet for a customer? Remodeling your own home? Instead of throw- ing old carpet away, recycle it through a pilot carpet- recycling program that will be available soon at the Delleker Transfer Station. The program is authorized by a new state law, Assembly Bill 2398, and will provide a collection trailer at the transfer station to accept post-consumer carpet. Plumas County carpet recyclers will be given a 25 percent discount on regular disposal fees to roll their discarded carpet up (nap side out) and place it in the trailer. All carpet collected this way will be trucked to a recycling company -- trans- portation paid by Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE) -- where it will be ground up and used for the manufacture of a variety of new products. AB 2398 opens the door for carpet recycling in Cali- fornia. Brochures with more information on the pilot program are available at the offices of InterMountain Disposal and Feather River Disposal, at all transfer stations, at local carpet retail stores and at the office of the Department of Public Works in Quincy. The recycling service win be available only at the Delleker Transfer Station. The Delleker Transfer Station is at 73980 Industrial Way, Delleker, CA 96122. Hours are Saturday - Tuesday, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m., closed noon 12:30 p.m. for lunch. More than 400 million pounds O f carpet is discarded in California landfills every year. AB 2398 is the Califor- nia Carpet Stewardship law, supporting the recycling of carpet into new products and materials. There is now a stewardship assessment of 5 cents pe" square yard on the purchase of all new carpet. This assessment supports the carpet recycling industry in California and is paying for a one-year Rural Counties Carpet Recycling Pilot Project through Feb. 28, 2013. Recycling carpet saves natural resources, conserves landfill space, reduces depen- dency on fossil fuels and can save money. Recycling allows a product at the end of its useful life to become a new resource. Carpet can be converted to fiber to make new carpet, car- pet padding, erosion control products and construction material. The carpet fiber can also be converted into plastic pellets and used in automotive components, fur- niture parts, leach field products and many other applications. After the carpet recycling trailer is delivered to the transfer station sometime in the next two weeks, the pilot program will run for 12 months. Then there will be an evaluation to see if changes or improvements are needed.
