Carpet and Flooring swells Recofloor's Recycling Ranks
Date posted: 11th November 2011
Carpet and Flooring, a leading UK distributor of floorcovering products, is the latest member to join Recofloor and increase the number of strategic collection points for the UK's award winning vinyl flooring recycling scheme.
Established in 1973, Carpet and Flooring has grown into one of the largest distributors, stocking and distributing products from Europe's leading manufacturers as well as its own domestic and contract floorcovering brands.
Having successfully piloted the Recofloor scheme at its Birmingham branch in August, Carpet and Flooring have now rolled it out to the remaining seven branches across the country. "I am delighted that Carpet and Flooring is now participating within the Recofloor Vinyl Take-Back Scheme through our network of branches," says Managing Director Paul Gordon.
"The scheme fits perfectly within the company's environmental objectives and targets, while providing an opportunity to assist our customers with the segregation and recycling of vinyl and safety flooring to maximise waste diverted from landfill."
Recofloor bins accepting waste vinyl off-cuts and waste smooth uplifted vinyl flooring are now located at all their depots in Bristol, Bow, Camberley, Cambridge, Gateshead, Glasgow and Manchester.
Flooring contractors and installers can also collect polythene bags from the trade counters for their waste material. When full, these can be left at the depots from where they are sent for eventual recycling into new flooring and traffic management products.
Recofloor Project Manager, Jane Gardner says: "We're delighted to welcome Carpet and Flooring on board. Their eight drop-off sites allows us to expand our collection network even further, making it easier and more convenient for local companies to recycle, rather than landfill, their vinyl flooring waste."
