Carpet

Carpet is flooring material of thick, woven material usually made from cotton, wool, or synthetic fibers.

Check this list for facilities that collect carpet or carpet pad.  See CalRecycle's resources on best practices for carpet removal (from Kings Co., WA), how to prepare and load a trailer of waste carpet, as well as CARE's interactive map of national certified carpet collectors and processors.
