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.
