Sustainability is very important to us and, with that in mind, we are very happy to be one of the flooring firms chosen to receive the Recofloor Gold Award again this year. Our partnership with Recofloor is a long lasting one and we are very proud to have been awarded the award again. In this blog, we will be talking about the award and what it means in greater detail.
Our Partnership with Recofloor
Recofloor was set up in 2009 by leading floor manufacturers Altro and Polyfloor in order to prevent waste vinyl flooring being disposed of in landfill sites. The scheme works in partnership with distributors, contractors and construction projects, collecting and recycling the waste vinyl flooring – which can reduce disposal costs by up to 70%. Recofloor has stopped thousands of tons of vinyl waste from going to landfill and being a supplier and installer of vinyl flooring it’s a scheme we are very happy to be a part of.
After we have completed any vinyl flooring jobs, our fitters place the waste into bulk bags provided by Recofloor. Once they are full, these bags are then collected by Recofloor for recycling.
The Gold Award
Recofloor’s Gold, Silver and bronze awards for 2018 are based on the volume and quality of vinyl of vinyl waste collected from January to December 2017. To avoid smaller contractors being put at a disadvantage, the awards are calculated by the amount of material collected per fitter. Contractors had to collect over one tonne of material per fitter to qualify for a Gold Award.
We are very committed to protecting the environment, recycling as much as possible. Our dedication has seen us collect this award on multiple occasions, recycling more than 10 tonnes of vinyl waste in 2015, leading us to win the Gold Award that year too.
