Altro are co-founder members of Recofloor, the industry's vinyl take-back scheme that collects safety and smooth vinyl offcuts and uplifted smooth vinyl, diverting them from landfill.
The waste vinyl flooring can come from flooring contractors, distributors and large construction sites including retail refurbishments using reverse logistics. Recofloor recycle these off cuts back into new flooring products, and uplifted vinyl goes into production of traffic calming products like road cones and road sign bases.
Since the Recofloor scheme was launched in 2009, a total of 2,218,863m2 of flooring has been recycled, saving 7,809 tonnes of CO2, which equates to taking 2,038 cars off the road for a year.
