Carpet Padding

Carpet padding can be made from polyurethane (foam) or natural fiber (wool or jute) and laid under carpet for sound absorption and insulation.

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.
