Carpet is dropped off at our Bro-Tex factory in Saint Paul or one of our drop off sites in MN, WI, IA, and NE.
Each piece of carpet is tested to identify the polymer type and to prevent cross contamination of the finished product.
Nylon, polypropylene and polyester face fibers are extruded into
pellets. These pellets as well as sheer dust and ground carpet can
become new carpet, plastic drainage pipes, acoustic matting, concrete
filler, oil absorbent material, road underlayment, landscaping materials
and energy substitutes for natural gas and coal.
