Shaw Lowers Reclamation Minimum Requirements

Customers can now return a minimum of 100 square yards of EcoWorx carpet tile instead of the originally proposed 500 square yards.

“Customers are increasingly looking to participate in a circular economy, which allows us to collectively lower our carbon footprint through landfill diversion,” says Tim Conway, vice-president of sustainability for Shaw’s commercial division. “Reducing the required minimums for our EcoWorx carpet tile simplifies the process even further and leverages the power of our robust distribution network.”

To make a reclamation request, customers can call the 1-800 number on the back of EcoWorx carpet tile, contact the local account manager or visit ShawRecycles.com to complete a short form. The reclamation team will handle all logistics from there, scheduling pick up at the customer’s location of choice or coordinating a drop off at a local Shaw distribution facility.

“Our customers rely upon our distribution network to deliver products on time and in a courteous manner,” says Scot Davis, vice-president of customer fulfillment at Shaw. “Utilizing our vast distribution network for reverse logistics, Shaw also delivers on our promise to reclaim and recycle our EcoWorx carpet tile.”

EcoWorx was launched in 1999, as the flooring industry’s first PVC-free, fully recyclable carpet tile.

Shaw has reclaimed and recycled almost one billion pounds of carpet, including EcoWorx, since 2006.
