STEP 1

Roll them up!
 

If your rug(s) isn’t rolled up yet, please give it a quick vacuum so it’s clean enough for processing.

Then either roll up or fold, which ever is easier for handling.

STEP 3

Check your text messages for updates.

For any rugs being picked up, please place it on the kerbside on the confirmation date.

If dropping at our depot, please arrive on the confirmed date with receipt number.

Rugs can be cumbersome to dispose of due to the weights, shapes and sizes.

We are so pleased that rug retailers and importers are encouraging customers to dispose of their unwanted rugs and samples through the TRAKS program.

 

Unfortunately landfill has become culturally acceptable - but as we all know at a great cost to our planet. This decade is The Decade of Do.

How do I know what my rug weighs?

  • Rugs that are 20kgs and under tend to be able to be picked up quite easily by one person and are usually less than 2m x 2m, depending on composition

  • Rugs that weigh between 21kgs and 50kgs usually requires 2 people to pick up and larger and is a pretty standard 2m x 3m rug

  • Rugs that are between 51kgs and 70kgs tend to need be professionally placed and moved. Sizes can vary

We ask that all rugs are vacuumed and checked for any contaminations.

Wherever possible please fold or roll your rugs for easier transportation
