Data was collected from carpet manufacturers and suppliers, reclaimable materials handlers and recyclers, and federal and local government agencies to quantify current material usage for carpet manufacturing, post-industrial and post-consumer carpet waste generation, waste disposal in landfills, and waste diversion for reuse, recycling, and energy generation, among others. The data provides a basis for assessing the impact of CARE on waste diversion in coming years.
