Recofloor sets new vinyl flooring collection record

In 2015, Recofloor, the vinyl-take back scheme that Altro are proud to be co-founder members of, collected 508 tonnes of material for recycling into flooring or other products. This is the second year in a row that the scheme has exceeded the 500 tonnes mark.

508 tonnes is a new annual collection record for Recofloor, which has 650-plus members throughout the UK and Ireland. Congratulations go to distributors who contributed 213 tonnes (42%) to last year’s total, contractors, with nearly 178 tonnes (35%) and construction projects which generated just over 28 tonnes.  Recycling, versus landfilling, waste vinyl flooring can reduce collectors’ waste disposal costs by up to 70% and also benefits the environment, so there are multiple benefits to taking part.

We’ll be celebrating this and landmark collection amount plus other achievements of contractors, distributors and construction companies at the 5th annual Recofloor Awards on 3 March in at Old Trafford, the home of Manchester United.
