DFS Flooring is teaming with the Antron® Reclamation Program to make carpet reclamation easy, economical and accessible to everyone. Regardless of make, manufacturer, construction or fiber type, we're accepting all types of carpet and any quantity — large or small. The Environmental Impact? Enormous. To date, the Antron® Reclamation Program has collected over 100 million pounds of carpet — that's over 400,000 cubic yards of conserved landfill space. The energy saved alone is enough to power more than 13,000 homes for a full year.
“The nation behaves well if it treats the natural resources as assets which it must turn over to the next generation increased and not impaired in value.”
