    Responsible carpet waste disposal & recycling

    Just Skips supports responsible and sustainable disposal of all waste types. Carpet fibres are slow to break down and can produce dangerous gases when taken to landfill. So if you’re disposing of old carpet it’s important to do it properly. All waste from our skip bins is taken to a licensed waste sorting facility where useful materials are recovered for reuse. Only non-reusable waste types are sent to landfill.

    Disposing of carpet and underlay has never been easier—and it’s more affordable than you think.

    Carpet disposal cost

    To hire a general waste skip bin for carpet disposal, prices start from $250 for a 4m3 vessel with no weight limit. We have two other, larger sizes of skip bins to choose from and you can opt for short term skip hire or long term skip hire to cover all eventualities.

    Don’t forget, Just Skips can also help dispose of your bricks & concrete waste and soil & sand waste in our separate skip bins.

    Carpet disposal FAQs

    Can I dispose of carpet at the tip?

    Yes, you can. If the carpet cannot be reused it can be disposed of at a waste disposal facility. However, please keep in mind that carpet taken to landfill is slow to disintegrate and can send dangerous chemicals into the ground. Before throwing away, make sure the carpet cannot be re-used first.

    How to dispose of carpet

    The best way to dispose of carpet is to hire a reputable company to take it away and dispose of it for you. A skip bin can be hired for this purpose, and you can also throw out other waste at the same time.

    Can you burn carpet to dispose of it?

    Although burning carpet isn’t illegal, it’s a bad idea for a number of reasons. Firstly, it releases hazardous chemicals into the air, such as lead, mercury, and dioxin. Incinerating unwanted carpet also releases endocrine disruptors and organic pollutants. Inhaling these particles can cause serious diseases.
