Recofloor shortlisted in two prestigious awards events

Recofloor are celebrating being shortlisted in two of the waste industry’s most prestigious awards events.

Recofloor has been shortlisted for the Circular Economy Project of the Year award at the Business Green Leaders Awards. Recognising sustainable business models, and clean technologies, the awards are in their 9th year. Recofloor’s entry highlighted the unique strengths of the scheme in pioneering a genuine circular economy project and overcoming significant logistical challenges in doing so.

Recofloor has also been shortlisted in the Recycling Excellence (SME) category at the National Recycling Awards, the waste management and recycling industry’s leading awards for best practice. Recofloor highlighted the buy-in and engagement, not only of the manufacturers founding and funding the scheme, but of the committed collector base that Recofloor has built over the last 10 years.

Speaking about the double shortlisting, Recofloor’s Project Officer Joe Gardner commented:

“Being shortlisted for these two very highly competitive awards is another recognition of Recofloor’s success in pioneering a genuinely unique collaboration along the flooring supply chain. We’re delighted that Recofloor’s continued success is being recognised, especially in our 10th anniversary year.”

The Business Green Leaders results will be announced on Wednesday 26th June at The Brewery, London with the National Recycling Awards ceremony on Thursday 27th June at the London Hilton Park Lane.

Recofloor is the national vinyl take-back scheme founded in 2009 by Altro and Polyflor for the commercial flooring industry. Recofloor collect post-installation vinyl flooring and recycle it into new flooring.
