Is there a cheap way to dispose of wet carpet. We moved in to our house
3 years ago. We recently found the last owners on property dump. We
have been slowly getting rid of the junk. We have three things left an
old rotted play house, a truck cap that seems to be in OK condition,
and a bunch of old carpet.
The carpet is soaked through and through. I was wondering if there is a
way for me to dispose of it other than the landfill? The landfill
charges by weight. I don't want to pay to throw out all that water.
Any idead on how I might get rid of this junk?
Cut the carpet into strips. If you have a
concrete or asphalt driveway, lay it on it and let
it dry out. If just dirt, put down a plastic and
then the carpet on top. Drive over it as much as
you want to until it is dry. Heck, if it is dirt,
leave it there. I saw someplace in a town where
they put old carpet in the alley. Worked good and
cut down the noise.
