Following are current and archived lists of manufacturers that are covered under CARE’s carpet stewardship program and are in compliance so long as CARE’s program is in compliance. The dates below reflect the date that the manufacturer or stewardship organization provided an updated list to CalRecycle.
Current and Recent Lists of Compliant Manufacturers and Brands
If a manufacturer is not on the current list and its product is sold in California, the manufacturer is out of compliance. A manufacturer must come into compliance either by joining an existing carpet stewardship program or by submitting a carpet stewardship plan to CalRecycle. CalRecycle may impose penalties against non-compliant manufacturers. Retailers shall only sell carpet in California from manufacturers/brands that are on the most current list of compliant manufacturers/brands.
Retailers also must show the amount of the assessment on the customer receipt or invoice (see an example in the California Carpet Stewardship Plan). Civil penalties are further described in regulation (see Section 18945).
