Carpet Reclamation Calculator

Enter # of square yards reclaimed :
NOTE: This information is based on original life cycle analysis work performed by DuPont combined with general experience and knowledge gained through experience in handling used carpet. When this formula was originally established, the average weight of carpet was 4.5 pounds per square yard and one cubic yard of space was made up of 45 square yards of carpet. Carpet now weighs 4.2 pounds per square yard so the cubic yard of space has been updated based on the lower weight of carpet.
An average pile of mixed used commercial broadloom carpet weighs about 4.2 pounds per square yard and takes up approximately 0.93 cubic yards of space for every 42 square yards of carpet installed.
About one half (1/2) the weight of used carpet is plastic face fiber versus backing material, adhesives and dirt.
The average US homes used 179,893,777 BTU´s per year.
