1 - Collecting
After installation or at end-of-life, off-cuts and old floors are collected into bags or on pallets. The customer contacts us to arrange collection
2 - Transport
Depending on what we’ve collected, we bring the waste back to our recycling centres, or send it to one of our partners.
3 - Sorting
Before the collected materials are ready for recycling, they will be sorted and cleaned before being shredded and recycled.
4 - Recycling
The action or process of converting waste into reusable material.
- At our own recycling plant or external recycler.
- Destination recyclate:
- Raw material for new floorings.
- If too contaminated or not REACH compliant, it’s turned into raw material for road furniture.
5 - New floors
The recycled material is used as raw material for new vinyl floors.
6 - Other applications
Because some post-consumer floors can’t be recycled into new flooring because they are not REACH compliant, we’ll find other applications such as footwear, street furniture and outdoor tiles.
