Carpet disposal is a tricky consideration for a lot of people, but it need not be. Yes, carpets do constitute a large volume of rubbish and they can’t be taken out with council collections. But there are rubbish removals Sydney services that happily and affordably remove old carpets. AA Adonis Rubbish Removals is proud to offer rubbish removal services throughout the Sydney Metropolitan area and in some circumstances, we can remove your old carpets if they have been taken up and are ready for pickup.
Though a long-term investment, carpets do need to be replaced eventually. Until recently, old carpets were automatically sent to landfill for dumping. This was anything but environmentally sound.
Replacing carpet gives your home, office, or commercial space a new lease on life. Disposing of old carpet may seem to be a challenge. Lifting and removing carpet is an unpleasant job. Some specialist service providers only offer carpet removal, and this involves cutting the carpet, loading it, and transporting it to an appropriate facility.
Carpets may be made of wool, nylon, polyester, polyethene or polypropylene. Only wool is biodegradable – and when it breaks down it produces greenhouse gases. The vast majority of modern carpets are synthetic. Synthetic fibres don’t break down in landfill.
Almost all types of carpet are recyclable – so it should not automatically be sent to landfill. Carpet fibres can be broken down and reused as raw materials. This can include manufacturing insulation and soft playground and sporting surfaces.
