overview

Flooring manufacturers Altro and Polyflor are founding members of the vinyl flooring take-back scheme, Recofloor. Waste vinyl flooring collected under the scheme is recycled and diverted from landfill.

The scheme accepts uplifted vinyl flooring and post-installation off-cuts. Vinyl flooring material is collected in bags and either picked up by Recofloor or dropped off at any participating flooring distributor or Recofloor drop-off site, located across the UK.

The recycled flooring is either used to manufacturer new flooring or used to make traffic management products such as traffic cones and road sign bases.

The scheme is managed by Axion Consulting Limited, experts in resource recovery.

how it works:

  • Telephone to register your interest with Recofloor
