Recofloor’s 2020 rugby-themed awards event kicks off in March at the world-famous Twickenham Stadium, where the achievements of the vinyl flooring recycling scheme’s members are set to be celebrated in style.
Guest host, former England and British and Irish Lions rugby union star turned commentator Brian Moore (pictured), will take centre stage at the ninth annual awards event, taking place on Wednesday 25 March.
He will present trophies and certificates to members of Polyflor and Altro’s national take back scheme who have excelled across a variety of award categories.
Recofloor’s 700-plus members continue to deliver consistent success in collecting vinyl flooring waste for recycling and, since 2009, have helped to divert nearly 5,000 tonnes from landfill.
Such achievements are recognised annually in a series of various award categories, with award winners eager to share their recycling success stories with customers, prospects and the flooring/construction sector as a whole.
Urging members to consider recent projects they have been involved with, Recofloor Scheme Manager, Richard McKinlay, commented: “We’re on the look-out for interesting, innovative and inspiring applications of how Recofloor has made a difference on all types of projects, large and small.
“Every year, our award event turns the focus on the tremendous work undertaken by our members to collect recyclable vinyl flooring for reuse in new products.
“It takes on-going effort and commitment to increase tonnages year-on-year and that’s why we want to hear about and recognise your success!”
During the day, Brian will share stories and anecdotes from his career and there will be plenty of opportunities to network, share best practice and learn more about how the Recofloor scheme can positively benefit your business.
Richard added: “Entries open soon for the awards, so please start thinking about how you can enter and join the celebrations.”
