With over 650 Recofloor collectors now active in the UK and Ireland it has never been a more exciting time to join the vinyl flooring take-back scheme, founded by flooring manufacturers, Altro and Polyflor.
You will find information on this page to help you manage your vinyl flooring waste including ordering Recofloor bulk bags and requesting collections.

Recofloor collects smooth and safety offcuts and smooth uplifted vinyl. We also collect roll ends – secure these on a double pallet in a pyramid formation. Alternatively, you can drop off small amounts of day-to-day vinyl flooring waste, free of charge, at a participating flooring distributor. Find your nearest drop-off site.

Contractors Bulk Bags

Recofloor bulk bags are 1m3 and hold approximately 80m2 of flooring or 250kg. Bulk bags should be placed on to a standard euro pallet (1200×1000) for collection. Please check your bulk bags before collections to ensure they are not contaminated with blades, metal, plastic packaging or other contamination that can cause problems in the recycling process.
