Recofloor – share the vinyl flooring recycling love this August

Throughout August, Recofloor's special summer Love2shop Promotion is encouraging more flooring companies to recycle their waste vinyl flooring - and be in with a chance to win a fantastic shopping prize.
Founded by leading flooring manufacturers Polyflor and Altro to divert waste vinyl flooring from landfill, the UK’s national vinyl flooring scheme collects smooth and safety off-cuts and smooth uplifted flooring for recycling back into new products, including flooring.
Open to new and existing Recofloor members, every flooring company raising a Recofloor collection during August (3rd – 28th) will be entered into a draw with a chance to win one of three packs of Love2shop Vouchers worth £100 each.
The Love2shop Voucher is accepted at over 20,000 shops including fashion, footwear, sports and home improvement stores, as well as many restaurants and at a number of attractions for fun family days out. The prizes will be offered to the first three names chosen at random on September 1st.
For contractors, the minimum collection requirement is two full bulk bags and for distributors, two full blue bins. All collections must be booked in by 5pm on Friday 28th August 2015. The collections do not have to be completed in August.
Companies can request a collection by phone, email or fill out an online form on the Recofloor website –
Recofloor’s Project Administrator Carla Eslava comments: “As well as existing members, we’re looking forward to welcoming new companies who wish to join the scheme and take part in our great August promotion. Simply phone or email us to register your company.
“With more than 650 Recofloor collectors and 63 drop-off sites across the UK and Ireland, we aim to make recycling post installation vinyl flooring off-cuts and uplifted vinyl flooring easier than ever.”
Benefits for Recofloor participants include a sustainable option for end-of-life flooring, enhanced green credentials and up to 75% savings in disposal costs. More than 2,400 tonnes of vinyl flooring has been collected since the scheme’s inception.
