Vinyl take-back scheme Recofloor has launched of its 2023 vinyl recycling awards. Showcasing members’ recycling achievements, the awards celebrate and share sustainability successes across the industry.  

For 2023, there are five open categories: Contractor of the Year; Distributor of the Year; Drop-Off Site User of the Year; Project of the Year and Recofloor Champion. These categories will be judged by the Recofloor team and representatives from scheme founders Altro and Polyflor. Companies can either enter themselves directly or nominate a member who deserves recognition. 

‘We’re looking for businesses who can demonstrate commitment to the scheme and show they are making a difference,’ says Carla Eslava, Recofloor manager. ‘Large or small, every member is welcome to enter. Previous winners range from local drop-off site users to regional distributors and national contractors: it’s always inspiring to find out how people are implementing the scheme and improving their sustainability practices.’

In addition to the open categories, Recofloor has brought back the Greatest Improver award after a two-year break. In this category, companies are awarded first, second and third place based on growth in their tonnages collected from 2021 to 2022.  Gold, Silver and Bronze award certificates will also be given to all participating companies for their recycling efforts and their tonnages collected.  

Previous winners have seen significant benefits from publicity in industry media. While there is not a face-to-face awards ceremony planned for the 2023 awards, trophies, certificates and a number of special prizes for the winning companies will be awarded to winners of the main categories. 

‘As zero waste targets spread through supply chains, winning a Recofloor award is a great way for flooring firms to boost their profile and highlight sustainability credentials to prospective customers,It’s also a powerful motivator, giving a boost to hard-working teams,’ says Eslava.

Entries will be open online from 19 December to 17 February 2023.
