Salvation Army tie-up for Greendale

Buying group Greendale has formed a partnership with The Salvation Army.

The flooring group has teamed up with the organisation to donate obsolete carpet from its warehouse for use in housing projects run by SATCoL, The Salvation Army’s Trading arm.

‘It’s become increasingly important to recycle/reuse where we can. Some of our obsolete carpet may have gone to landfill, but by partnering with The Salvation Army, we have found an outlet that will take these carpets and utilise them for those in need, the most vulnerable in our society,’ says Eamonn Prescott, Greendale chief executive (pictured with the first delivery).

‘Our partnership with Greendale has given new life to carpet that would traditionally be seen as waste. SATCoL has found a way to repurpose offcuts and make them accessible to everyone. It’s a win-win for the industry, people and the planet, I am excited to see how this grows in the future,’ says Richard Shea, SATCoL service development manager.

Greendale estimates that be the end of the year it will have diverted more than 10tonnes of material from landfill to recycling/reuse projects.
