Jane Gardner leaves Axion to take on exciting European flooring role

  • 8 Aug 2018

It has been announced that one of the earliest employees, Jane Gardner, Head of Axion‘s Consulting Services, will be leaving the Manchester-based resource recovery specialists at the end of the month.

Jane originally joined the company back in 2006 as Project Co-ordinator, responsible for administration relating to Recovinyl and securing repeat contracts for managing this successful PVC Recycling scheme. However, Jane will be taking on a fantastic new role as Managing Director of the European Resilient Flooring Institute (ERFMI) based in Brussels.

Axion Director Roger Morton said: “We are very sad to see Jane leave Axion; she was one of our earliest employees. She has been the driving force behind the development of the many successful recycling collection schemes that we manage and has led and delivered numerous other novel recycling projects for many different clients over the past 15 years.”

Jane was also responsible for setting up Recofloor, the UK’s vinyl flooring recycling scheme, RecoMed, a UK-wide take-back scheme that recycles PVC used in healthcare and the management of Carpet Recycling UK. 

The industry collection schemes will now be led by Richard McKinlay, Axion’s Head of Circular Economy, and Carpet Recycling UK will continue to be managed overall by Axion, spearheaded by Adnan Zeb-Khan as CRUK Scheme Manager. Adnan, who has over 20 years of experience in the waste sector, will work with Marie Rhodes and the rest of the CRUK team to continue to drive forward the diversion of carpets from landfill.

Roger added: “All of us wish Jane well in her new role and I know she will continue to contribute to the circular economy by lobbying for effective legislation in Europe. I am sure we will be working closely with her in the future to our mutual benefit.”
