Carpet Padding

Facility Drop-Off

Drop off carpet and carpet padding at:

Napa Recycling & Composting Facility
820 Levitin Way (off Hwy 29 & Tower Rd) | (707) 255-5200

Napa Recycling & Waste Services also offers covered debris boxes for carpet recycling at your home, business or construction site.

Please make sure to follow these guidelines when recycling carpet:

    • The carpet and pad needs to be dry (no wet carpet or pad).
    • Carpet should be in rolls. Please roll carpet and carpet pad separately. Carpet tiles are accepted as is.
    • No garbage accepted (tack strips, knife blades, lunch waste, plastic bags full of carpet scraps, etc.).

We partner with the Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE), a joint industry-government project to increase carpet and carpet pad recycling. Our carpet and carpet padding is sorted and processed into material for use in new carpet, carpet padding, plastic lumber, car parts and additional recycled plastic items.


Curbside Pickup: Schedule a bulky item pickup today for a roll of carpet pad. For a lot of bulky items, consider our debris box service.

Send to a Foam Recycler

Rebond carpet foam can be recycled by a foam recycler. Find a foam recycling program (drop-off or municipal).


Moldy Padding Cannot Be Recycled

Soiled or moldy carpet is contaminated and cannot be recycled. Foam recycling programs will not accept these carpets, so take them to the landfill instead.

Recycle Carpet Pad With Carpet

It’s common for the same companies that recycle your carpet to recycle the carpet pad as well. View a list of California retailers that accept carpet pads.

OK in the Garbage Cart

Place small amounts of carpet padding in the garbage cart. If you can’t fit all of it in the garbage, then take it to the landfill. Garbage haulers may not pick up your garbage if it does not fit in the receptacle.
