Recofloor restarts waste vinyl flooring collections

  • 5 Aug 2020

Collections of waste vinyl flooring through the Recofloor take-back scheme will restart from 3 August, with the full service being temporarily suspended in April due to the COVID-19 lockdown.

A ‘soft start’ of some collections commenced in June, to help support Recofloor members and manage the volumes of waste vinyl flooring.

Contractors and distributors can contact Recofloor through the website or by phone (0161 355 7618) to request their collection.

Collections can take between four to ten working days and are carried out by Polyflor and Altro during their deliveries as backhaul.

Founded by leading flooring manufacturers Polyflor and Altro in 2009, Recofloor accepts smooth vinyl (including luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) and loose lay) and safety vinyl offcuts and roll ends, as well as uplifted smooth vinyl for recycling back into new products.

Carla Eslava, Recofloor Scheme Manager, commented: “As the construction sector gets back to work, we are reassuring Recofloor members that we are here for them and resuming collections from 3 August.

“This helps them to recycle their material, a sustainable alternative to landfill that also helps them save on landfill disposal costs.”

Carla emphasised all waste vinyl flooring must be free from contamination as per the Recofloor guidelines. For collections more than 1,000 square metres of vinyl waste, companies should check first if Recofloor is able to collect.

“Recofloor is open for business, we can collect and can send bags to members who need them,” she added.
