Walker’s NOW Recycles 100%

Our Environmental Position

At Walker’s, our environmental position is clear and straight-forward: actions speak volumes. We have chosen to focus on what we as a flooring company can do to decrease our impact on our surroundings and our use of resources. This belief stems in part from our determination to be the best flooring concern to do business with in central Virginia. Recycling and reclamation are more than marketing slogans here at Walker’s – they are part of our core value structure, part of our legacy and the right way to conduct business today.

Walker’s Carpets & Interiors was the first flooring contractor in central Virginia to start a recycling and reclamation program. Kent Walker was the first in the area to realize the huge benefits in diverting the massive quantities of carpet, padding and other floor coverings from our landfills. Together, with other Starnet partners, Walker’s has helped divert 17,110,368 sq. feet of carpet from our dumps and reduced CO2 gas emissions by an estimated 14,876,349 pounds in the last two years alone. And now, again, Walker’s is the first in Central Virginia to recycle 100% of all removed flooring and construction waste from all work sites – zero refuse to the dump.                               

Walker’s One-Stop Reclamation Program is a complete turn-key, environmentally friendly service. It is LEED compliant and can be used for LEED accreditation. It also works within the green initiatives set forth by the Carpet America Recovery Effort – CARE. It’s simple, all you need to do is call us and we take care of the entire process – from removal to certification. Our unbiased program is flexible enough to accept and recycle all carpet and flooring materials – any fiber, from any mill, from any manufacturer. That’s right – we reclaim, recycle and help to reuse 100% of all floor coverings we remove on each and every job. So stop worrying about what you’re going to do with your old floor s – call Walker’s.
