      In the Fall of 2008, as part of its sustainability initiatives, Capilano University included in it's tender request the requirement that all carpet being removed be recycled. Our contractor 'Beatty Floors Ltd.' used the 'Recover: Carpet Recycling Program' and in total 10,000 pounds of carpet diverted from the landfill.
