Clinton Carpets Carpet Crusher - KenburnClinton Carpets in Retford benefits from their ” carpet crusher “

As part of their commitment to zero waste to landfill, Retford based Clinton Carpets purchased a  “ carpet crusher ” following a visit to Flooring Show in Harrogate.  Owner Tony Brennan explains ‘When I heard the statement, ‘it costs less to recycle carpet than it does to send it to landfill’ a deal was done to purchase a ” carpet crusher “.

The nature of our business means we also generate large volumes of cardboard and plastic film waste as well and we use the carpet crusher to compact these waste streams in order to receive a revenue from a local recycling company’.

Here’s what Carpet Craft Flooring in Redcar have said about their ” carpet crusher “

Mark Lilleker, Carpet Craft Flooring’s Managing Director ‘When we visited the Kenburn stand at the Flooring Show at Harrogate we were intrigued by a large yellow carpet crushing machine.

It quickly became apparent when we talked to Kenburn that this machine would be ideal and reduce our skip costs which over the pas few years have risen dramatically.

Kenburn carpet crusherKenburn informed us that with 30 tonnes of compaction force the “ carpet crusher ” would compact our carpet waste on a 4:1 compaction ratio and we were delighted to discover their claims were 100% accurate.

By using the “ carpet crusher ” all our waste polypropylene off cuts are recycled into equestrian flooring and all our old carpet waste mixed together with old underlay is converted into refuse derived fuel (RDF) and used to power concrete kilns.’ Kenburn acts as the link between the flooring companies and recyclers to help customer find the most cost effective way to recycle underlay and waste carpet.

We work closely with Carpet Recycling UK and well as with “waste to energy” companies.  They use underlay and waste carpet to power concrete kilns, because these waste streams have a high calorific value.
