Carpet Tile

Carpet makes its way into America’s landfills every year. At Mannington, we have applied a responsible end-of-life plan for the carpet products we manufacture. Through our LOOP® reclamation program, we take back post-consumer carpet tile and closed-loop recycle it back into both carpet and hard surface flooring.

Going the distance to recycle

LOOP® contributes to our goal of becoming a “net user of waste.”

We care about doing what’s right for the world in which we live. We’ve also made it easier for our customers to do what’s right by helping them recycle their used carpet tile.
