Shaw Take Back Guarantee

The Shaw Environmental Guarantee states that Jacobsen Creative Surfaces Ltd, as the New Zealand distributor for Shaw, guarantees to store and ship back to Atlanta, USA, for recycling, any carpet tile or broadloom carpet made with EcoWorx® backing at no cost to the customer. This guarantee is subject to the following limitations.

To take advantage of this guarantee, material must be sent back to Jacobsen's warehouse in Auckland, New Zealand. The uplift from the floor and transportation cost to the warehouse in Auckland is at the cost of the end user.

Material must be free of all types of debris and uncontaminated by any toxic substances, such as solvents that may be present. Adhesive residue on the backing is acceptable. No other carpet tile backing, such as PVC, or other roll carpet backings may be mixed on
EcoWorx® pallets. It is Shaw's goal to provide our EcoWorx® customers with materials continuously collected and returned through successive cradle to cradle product lifecycles.

Shaw reserve the right to change the EcoWorx® polymer at any time as technology, material, and processing improves the environmental performance of the product. As a result, Shaw reserves the right to modify or replace this guarantee in the future. No prior notification is required for these changes.
