Glen Raven offers a recycling service for Sunbrella customers, expanding the opportunity to reclaim Sunbrella fabric from the field.
Recycling is an important part of our commitment to sustainability and the environment. For over 20 years, Glen Raven has recycled Sunbrella acrylic manufacturing waste into industrial products such as felt, insulation, and padding. Some of this recovered material waste is reborn as novelty yarns for use in decorative Sunbrella fabrics.
We are proud to report that this program has enabled our customers to recycle over 100,000 pounds of fabric over the past three years. Thank you for your participation!
We accept Pre-Consumer or Post-Consumer Sunbrella fabric waste — including used awning covers, boat covers, and upholstery. Waste should be relatively clean and dry. Any rope, cable, vinyl, or foam cushioning should be removed.
The packaging materials used to ship your fabric will also be recycled. Our facility recycles 100% of all industrial and office waste - absolutely nothing goes to the landfill.
Administration of the Recycle My Sunbrella program is funded by Glen Raven. The only cost to you is transportation of materials to our recycling center in South Carolina. We recognize that Shipping costs money, and that transportation has a 'carbon footprint' and environmental impact of its own. So a return may not be the best option for everyone.
If your shipment is more than 1000 pounds or larger than two pallets, please complete the RMS form and ask for confirmation that the recycling center is prepared to receive it. Please do not ship until you receive this confirmation. Pallets must be no larger than 4 feet by 6 feet in size.
Our fire retardant awning fabric, FIRESIST®, is also recyclable. Visit www.RecycleMyFiresist.com for details.
