Kasey Kruse Wakefield is the visionary entrepreneur behind Kruse Carpet Recycling, which has diverted 100-million pounds of carpet from landfills or incineration. In 2005, she became the President of Kruse Carpet Recycling, her family-run business. The
company's collection center hauls in carpeting from all realms of life, such as
individual houses, carpet sellers, and large-scale demolition projects.
Unfortunately, not all carpet by-products are recyclable, but that hasn’t stopped Wakefield. Her company is proud of its Kruse Cushion Ride, which retrieves some
otherwise unrecyclable elements out of carpet and mixes them with sand. This
concoction creates horse footings – perfect for the floor of show arenas and
Kasey often speaks at conferences to educate contractors, carpet manufacturers and
sales teams about how carpet can and can’t be recycled. This allows sellers to
convey accurate information to those shopping for carpets. Her company also
helps people identify if their carpet is recyclable by testing small samples
for fiber tests.
