Long Island Carpet Recycling's cost-effective and environmentally friendly recycling service helps put people to work.

 

In these tough economic times, every opportunity to create employment and help the environment is important for businesses everywhere. Instead of throwing away used carpet, recycle it. Thiskeeps it out of the landfill, puts people to work, and generates revenue for your business. Green jobs are the future and we can all do our part.

 

Most carpet is made from oil. Over 3.5% of all waste disposed in U.S. landfills is carpet. And because carpet does not biodegrade, it will stay in landfills for generations. Carpet recycling reuses the 9 million barrels of oil wasted when carpet is disposed in landfills. 

 

With our wide service offering and fast, friendly customer service, Long Island Carpet Recycling is deeply committed to reducing landfill, recycling valuable material back into the manufacturing stream, and putting people to work.

 
Call or email us today to reduce your carpet waste.

Clean Air New York Has Declared an Air Quality Action Day

Posted on Wed, Jun 20, 2012 @ 08:11 AM
Clean Air New York Air Quality Action Day Long Island
 
An Air Quality Action Day is forecast in our
region for today (Wednesday, June 20, 2012).

URGENT!!!!!

Here are several simple steps to take today to prevent pollution:

  • Combine errands into a single trip.
  • Postpone unnecessary trips.
  • Take the subway, bus or train instead of driving.
  • Avoid letting your vehicle idle, such as at the drive-thru.
  • Forward this message to family and friends.

The New York State Department of Transportation has declared that today, Wednesday, June 20, 2012, is an Air Quality Action Day in the downstate metro area due to forecasted high levels of ground-level ozone pollution in parts of the region (please visit the Clean Air NY Web site for more information http://www.cleanairny.org/LocalAirQuality/Default.aspx). While tomorrow is still a day when people can go about most of their normal activities, such as going to work, driving may be one of the most polluting activities that people do tomorrow, and we encourage everyone to leave their cars at home if possible.

Ground-level ozone is a respiratory irritant that can trigger asthma attacks and aggravate emphysema, bronchitis and other respiratory ailments. Children, people with pre-existing respiratory or heart conditions, people doing strenuous outdoor work or exercise and the elderly are particularly vulnerable to the effects of ozone.

Clean Air NY is sponsored by the New York State Department of Transportation in support of regionwide air-quality efforts.
