Create a handle for an easy way to carry rolled waste carpet
Here is an easy way to carry waste carpet. First, cut the pieces into manageable strips— about 4 ft. to 5 ft. long—with a utility knife. Then roll up each piece and make two parallel 8-in. incisions, about 2 in. apart, in the middle of the roll. Make a longer cut 2 in. wide on the loose end of the roll, and wind it through the two parallel incisions. You now have an easy-to-carry roll—with a handle—that won’t unwind.
