More distributors sign up to the Recofloor takeback scheme
Vinyl recycling scheme Recofloor has significantly boosted its presence in the Midlands, while boosting its national coverage by more than 10%.
Five Headlam distributors have signed up to the Recofloor take-back scheme, opening up more opportunities for contractors and fitters in the Midlands and East of England to divert their waste vinyl flooring from landfill.
The new drop-off sites are located at four Garrard Waters sites in Coventry, Leicester, Northampton and Peterborough, and Mytton Flooring, Norwich. The openings bring the number of sites to 59.
Founded by Polyflor and Altro in 2009, Recofloor accepts LVT, smooth vinyl and safety vinyl offcuts, loose lay and roll ends, as well as uplifted smooth vinyl for recycling back into new products.
‘These drop-off sites definitely add value to the network, bringing the total to eight now in the Midlands. This is great news for contractors and fitters giving them more local options to deposit their waste vinyl flooring for recycling and increase the diversion of material from landfill,’ says Carla Eslava, Recofloor scheme manager.
‘We support the aims of Recofloor in diverting material from landfill and being able to offer this facility will help to reduce disposal costs for our contractors and fitters. My next steps are to visit customers and further build awareness of the Recofloor scheme and its sustainable advantages for their businesses,’ says Richard Hurlston, Garrard Waters, Coventry branch manager.
