As a last resort unwanted carpets should be taken to your nearest recycling site and placed in the general waste skips. These will be sent to landfill for disposal.

Why not hire an industrial steam cleaner or use a local carpet cleaning firm to clean and spruce up your carpet so you can continue to use it. 

Did you know, if you have a homemade compost heap, pieces of carpet are ideal as an insulating material to place on the top of the heap to keep the heat in. 

Unwanted carpets and rugs can be sold or given to charity shops.
