I saw the Tip of the Day that went out about carpeting. PLEASE recycle your carpet!
Here is a couple companies that will recycle carpet:
Interface - ReEntry Program
DuPont - The Invironmentalists - the Interior Services Company
For others, and to learn more, please visit Carpet Recovery:
It is incredibly wasteful to dump carpet, so PLEASE try to recycle it. These companies can make it into new sustainable product and keep it out of the landfill.

We just put a piece of recycled carpet from a nearby apartment complex on the floor of our boat. We have found we can even wash it!
Thanks for the tip. I will be needing to take up some old carpet shortly, and I am ashamed to say that I had never even thought of recycling it. But now that it has been pointed out to me I will be sure to know what I am doing with it before it comes up.
