To Dump, Or Not To Dump?

Sooner or later, all synthetic turf will become unserviceable and need replacing. If you purchased your turf from somewhere other than Courts & Greens, chances are it will be sooner rather than later, but what then? Removing old turf is a large endeavor and it’s not exactly something you want in a landfill.

Reuse Or Recycle

Sadly, some turf does end up in dumps but it’s only part of the equation. Infill and backing need to be responsibly disposed of as well. According to the Synthetic Turf Council, crumb rubber, TPE, organic, and silica sand infill can all be reused or recycled. Turf made of polyethylene, polypropylene, and nylon can also be reused or recycled too.

Recycling isn’t the only option, either. Given that some areas of a yard will wear out faster than others, edges or corners can often be cut up and reused in smaller applications. These could be repurposed in condos or apartments, batting cages, center road medians, or whatever else you can think of creatively.
