Recofl oor celebrates 10 years of vinyl fl ooring recycling in 2019


MULTI award-winning RECOFLOOR, a champion for sustainability in the flooring sector, will be celebrating 10 years of recycling waste vinyl flooring in 2019.


Since its 2009 inception by fl ooring manufacturers Altro and Polyfl or, the award-winning Take Back scheme has led to an impressive total of 4,300 tonnes of waste vinyl material being recycled – with rising collections breaking records year-on-year.


Set up by the two companies to tackle growing volumes of waste vinyl fl ooring being sent to landfi ll, Recofl oor now has well over 700 collectors throughout the UK and Ireland, plus more than 60 drop-off sites accepting waste vinyl fl ooring.


Smooth and safety vinyl off cuts and roll ends, uplifted smooth vinyl, luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) and loose lay are recycled back into new products, including fl ooring manufactured by Altro and Polyfl or. The scheme is widely acknowledged as a leading example of manufacturers taking responsibility for driving sustainability across the fl ooring industry.


Bob Smith, Polyfl or’s Technical Director, said: “Plastics are hot news at the moment and we are proud to be instrumental in recycling our waste vinyl fl ooring. We, as well as Altro, invest signifi cant amounts of time, energy and money into the scheme.


“In 2017, we recycled 563 tonnes; that’s enough material to make 200,000 square metres of new fl ooring.”


Praising members’ commitment, Recofl oor’s Project Offi cer Joe Gardner added: “We are truly proud of our achievements over the past decade and certainly credit is due to all our members – fl ooring companies, contractors and distributors – who continue to work tirelessly to support the scheme. Everyone deserves a big pat on the back for their eff orts and enthusiasm.”


Recofl oor’s engagement throughout the entire fl ooring supply chain is crucial to powering its success; helping members to save up to 70% on disposal costs while reducing their environmental impact.


From the outset Recofl oor made an impact, winning several high-profi le environmental and innovation awards for its recycling achievements within the scheme’s fi rst fi ve years. In 2013, the scheme was recognised with a Green Apple Gold Award for Environmental Best Practice.


By the time Recofl oor reached its fi fth birthday in 2014, the scheme had reached a 2,000-tonnes collection milestone. 2015 saw over 100 new members join Recofl oor and by that year, the scheme had saved more than 2,000 tonnes of CO2.


Joe added: “We’ve come a long way in ten years, but there’s still so much Recofl oor can do to further advance sustainability in this sector and help our members improve their environmental credentials too. ”
