Recofloor celebrates its 6th Year Anniversary

Polyflor is a cofounding and funding member of Recofloor, the industry’s leading vinyl take-back scheme for recycling end of life post consumer vinyl flooring. Through Recofloor, Polyflor can recycle smooth and safety installation off-cuts, smooth uplifted flooring and old stock roll-end and samples which would normally end up in landfill. This material is recovered and recycled into new flooring or other useful products such as traffic cones. Polyflor Australia has recycled 112 tonnes and globally 2,177 tonnes of vinyl flooring. This volume equals nearly 725,667m2 or 18,141 x 20m rolls – enough vinyl flooring waste to cover 100 football pitches. This is a saving of 1,741,600 kg or 1.7 thousand tonnes of CO2 which equates to driving the average petrol car 207 times round the equator or taking 430 cars off the road for a year.
