Cavalier Bremworth actively supports the use of waste exchange and recycling programmes for used residential carpet.
In 2012, Cavalier Bremworth launched a world-first by producing a new carpet backing made from recycled wool carpet in its entirety. This process has now been patented to Cavalier Bremworth.
Production of Flashbac recycled carpet backing is diverting tonnes of waste carpet away from landfill each year and this is expected to grow as the scheme expands, and as exports of the Flashbac backing develop.
For commercial carpets, the company operates a Product Stewardship Scheme, ensuring that wool broadloom carpet uplifted from clients is not incinerated or sent to landfill, but is used productively as a recycled product.
The company offers an 'end-of-life' take-back for Cavalier Bremworth carpet bought for commercial projects but additionally will take back wool carpet where the company has won the job to replace the flooring (and the uplfited flooring is a recyclable 100% wool product). Carpet returned to Cavalier Bremworth is recycled into weed-matting at the end of its life and we give a complete assurance that returned carpet is never sent to landfill or incinerated.
Over the past two years Cavalier Bremworth has gifted more than 30,000 weed mats made from uplifted carpet to schools and councils for revegetation, landscape and garden projects. It provides excellent soil nutrients and trials have demonstrated great results in promoting plant growth.
