You can take rugs to a Recycling Centre.

If you have a rug that is in good condition, you could donate it to a charity shop or reuse organisation.

You can also give them away for free online or you could try selling it online.

Choose to reuse
  • Local gardeners or gardening groups may be interested in using your old carpet. It is useful for insulating compost heaps and keeping weeds at bay on vegetable plots and on paths. Wool rich carpets also make a very good mulch!
  • If you are building a garden pond, use old carpet to line it before you put the pond liner in – it protects the liner from sharp stones
  • You can cut it and use it to protect your car windscreen from frost
