Where to Donate Carpet?

Where to Donate Carpet?

Q: I'm working at an interior design company and we are cleaning out our carpet section and have many samples that we're getting rid of. Do you have any thoughts on where we might be able to donate them? I know there are recycling companies, but don't think the company would pay for that service...

I have sent a request to Build it Green, but would appreciate any other tips as there are 5+ industrial garbage bags full of samples and I would definitely prefer they don't go into a landfill.

Editor: Habitat for Humanity is the first organization that comes to mind. We imagine that even if they can't use the carpet samples themselves, they could sell them in one of their Restores.

Does anyone else have any other thoughts on organizations that would take donated carpet samples?
