A new social enterprise for carpet recycling has been officially opened by John and Jean Broadley, the Mayor and Mayoress of Hyndburn, alongside local MP Graham Jones.
‘Lancashire Carpet Reuse and Recycling CIC’ is based at Springhill Works in Accrington, and was set up to help save the enormous amount of carpet waste from being irresponsibly dumped in our ever-decreasing landfill space.
Company Director, Graham Charnock was extremely happy with the launch: “The support from the local government and other agencies has been fantastic over the past few months. The scheme was launched with the idea of saving up to 3 tons of carpet from going to landfill each week. We are currently on target to achieve this but still need the support of local companies and communities, as this is a not-for-profit organisation and need the 3 tons each week for the business to break even.”
Carpet recycling is available throughout Lancashire and the first point of contact for anyone wishing to have their old carpet recycled is either through any of the Your Carpet Shop retail outlets in Accrington, Blackburn and Clitheroe, or phone 01254 51960.
