I made 50 dollars the other day. A guy needed some carpet padding and carpet hauled off. He paid me 20 dollars and I sold the stuff to the recycler for another 30. We get 4 cents a lb for padding. It was 7 cents. Now they take carpet too. Paying 2 cents a lb. It weighs 4 times as much as the padding. Orlando Fl. It has to be nylon carpet though and no glue on the bottom. They use a xrf gun to check it. Made another 20 yesterday.
