Mohawk's GreenWorks Center

GreenWorks Logo from Mohawk®Annually, approximately 6 billion pounds of carpet is disposed of in landfills, most of which will not decompose. This accounts for over 1.2% of the total U.S. solid waste stream. The Mohawk Group, one of the largest carpet manufacturers in the United States, is working to change that. While the task at hand is rather difficult, they have made quite a dent in reducing the amount of carpet that is being disposed of with the creation of the Mohawk GreenWorks Center. Located in Chatsworth, Georgia, Mohawk has created a carpet recycling center that can not only recycle nylon 6, but also nylon 6.6, and polypropylene. Out of the used carpets that are reclaimed at the GreenWorks center, 90% can be made back into useful products. According to Mohawk, this is the highest carpet recovery rate in the carpet industry and is over three times that of their closest competitor. While only about 5% of carpet is being recycled today, I'm hoping that with carpet manufacturers like Mohawk setting a positive example that others will soon be following suit.

I just went to Mohawk GreenWorks Center section on their website and see that there is a recycling center open in Chatsworth, Georgia. They also mention that this type of recycling center can be built because it is portable? Is there one coming out to Northern California anytime soon?

Does anyone know? Thanks
