Carpet recovery grows
NDA
One of the toughest recycling challenges facing demolition contractors is often carpet. Recently, Carpet America Recovery Effort of Dalton, Ga., north of Atlanta, announced that its 452 members have diverted more than 351 million pounds of scrap carpet from U.S. landfills in 2012, a 5 percent increase over 2011. Some 294 million tons, or 84 percent, were recycled into new carpet. California's new carpet recycling law, Assembly Bill No. 2398, diverted over 112 million pounds of carpet from the state's landfills. Since its founding in 2002, Carpet America Recovery Effort members have diverted more than 2.7 billion pounds of carpet from that nation's landfills. For more information, go to www.carpetrecovery.org.

Here's how to kill employee turnover before it kills you
Fast Company
Customer churn — where users engage, disengage and quickly flee — can kill a company. And as William Tincup argues at OpenView, churning through your team will kill you just as dead. "Employee turnover can be just as damaging, impeding your ability to attract top talent right now, and lessening the likelihood that you'll retain your highest performers in the long-term," Tincup wrote.
