While it can be a little more complicated for you to do but there are some recycling organizations in the UAE that will recycle carpet, turning it into everything from roofing shingles to railroad ties and furniture batting etc. Ask your installer or carpet supplier, as many individual carpet and rug companies offer recycling options at their factories.

4.Reuse it

Use bits and pieces of your useless rug by carpeting in different areas of your house. Get creative! forget about the rough & worn-out nature of the carpet, there’s a surprising amount of uses with the carpet you want to throw away:

-Use this old floor cover piece to cover cat furniture, or flip it into cat scratchers.

-Use as insulation for tiny spaces, including pipes, attics, dog houses, or even your compost heap (heat helps the composting process in winter)!

-Use as a weed suppressant in gardens. Place under gravel or bark to create a new, weed-free pathway.

-If there’s a larger undamaged piece that can be salvaged, try cutting a rectangle for a new welcome mat or kneeling pad for the garden.

-If only little bits can be used, try cutting smaller pieces to use for moving heavy furniture, or for an extra-durable scrubbing tool.

By all means, try not to waste your rug to end up causing environmental pollution. Call a rubbish removal company & don’t worry about “who will take my junk away?”. Take my junk Dubai is the leading junk/rubbish removal company in Dubai -UAE.
