How to Get Rid of Carpet: The Easiest Solution

how to get rid of carpet

When you live in one place for years, you reach a point where it’s time to replace the carpeting in some part of your home. It doesn’t look like much, but once you start tearing it up, rolls of carpet accumulate almost faster than you can pull it up. After completing all your hard work, you’re left with a huge pile of heavy, old carpeting to get rid of. If you’re wondering how to get rid of carpet, there is really only one quick and easy option.

How to Get Rid of Carpet

Recycling? Recycling carpet is possible, but it’s complicated, as it needs to be broken down. And regulating at recycling locations vary state to state.

Burning? Carpets are treated with chemicals, so burning is not an option.

Trash? You might be able to throw small pieces of carpeting in your regular trash but your local trash pick up may not accept large quantities of it. You could cut up your carpeting and slowly throw out pieces week by week until it’s all gone, but that would take a long time.

This leaves you with one quick and easy carpet removal option: Hire a local junk removal company.
