CARPET RECYCLING

Bentley Prince Street
Bentley Prince Street's ReEntry carpet reclamation program has diverted more than 100 million pounds of carpet from our landfills since its creation in 1995. With ReEntry, the material value of the carpet is maintained and the embodied energy stays with the recycled carpet material, providing ideal feedstock for more beautiful products. By closing the loop, we've afforded ourselves some previously unheard of options for further increasing the post-consumer recycled content of our own products. After recycling your carpet, Bentley Prince Street provides a reclamation certificate that specifies the number of pounds of carpet diverted from landfill.

Your wedding or special event can easily be Eco-friendly. With a little forethought and the right contacts, we create an event you can be environmentally proud of. We believe a Green Event is an event where the earth is considered an Honored Guest. Our aim is minimize the carbon footprint left after the festivities. There are several things we can do to help accomplish this mission. We encourage the use of proper materials, reused or recycled, and eco-friendly locations. We promote vendors who are socially responsible with their products and their waste. Organic, locally grown foods are recommended, followed by cloth linens, washable plates and utensils. We suggest items that are rented and can be reused by others. Recycled paper used for invitations or evites, candles made with soy, and flowers from your garden would be considered green. We can even arrange for your remaining food to feed the less-fortunate. Together we can make your event “kind” and “responsible.”
