CARE staff tabled this month at the Southern California Facilities Expo in Anaheim. Product and Market Development Manager Rob Thiess (pictured speaking to an attendee) noted, “The SoCal Facilities Expo was a great place to spread the word that 'Carpet IS Recyclable!' and to meet operators of facilities such as convention centers, schools and universities, who may regularly tear out large amounts of carpet. We were able to direct potential new post-consumer carpet generators towards CARE's public drop-off site locations where appropriate."
With the growing number of Greater Bay Area drop-off sites and as a part of our targeted Regional Approach, CARE staff conducted in-person tablings at several Bay Area contractor supply stores this summer, to spread the word about where and how to recycle tear-out carpet.
