You get paid your $200 or $300 and then you dispose of it. Your options are 1. go to the dump and you pay $30 or 2. go recycle it and they pay you $30 (1000 lb load). So, if you recycle it you arent only making the $30 from recycling it but, also saving $30 that you would of paid at the dump. So, in reality you getting $60 not just $30 in your wallet.
Carpet is plentiful and is heavy so you can get a lot of weight fast.
