Recofloor Case Study: Birch Distribution
This case study highlights how Recofloor worked with Birch Distribution, who were the first distributor to start collecting vinyl off-cuts and uplifted flooring in Recofloor bins at their site.
Recofloor is the vinyl flooring take back scheme founded and funded by flooring manufacturers Altro and Polyflor. Waste vinyl flooring collected under the scheme is recycled and diverted from landfill. The scheme accepts uplifted vinyl flooring and post-installation off-cuts. Vinyl flooring material is collected in bags and either picked up by Recofloor or dropped off at any participating flooring distributor or Recofloor drop-off site, located across the UK. The recycled flooring is either used to manufacturer new flooring or used to make traffic management products such as traffic cones and road sign bases.
