Landfill ban of carpet waste?

  • Landfill ban could accelerate material recovery

  • Must be implemented over a timeframe to allow building of capacity for recycling

  • Hurried ban could lead to :

    • Increased incineration – lack of UK capacity will lead to export of carpet to incineration in Europe

    • Lack of carpets for development of recycling infrastructure


Cruk position

  • Set targets to show progress in diversion rates

  • Continuation of Landfill tax escalator beyond 2014/ 15

  • Landfill ban with 5 to 10 year transition period

  • Voluntary commitment preferable to legislation
