Recofloor members who have tackled their vinyl flooring recycling and pushed forward their achievements over the past year will be recognised at the fourth annual Recofloor Awards Event to be held at Leicester Tigers Rugby Club on Tuesday March 17th 2015.
Founded by Altro and Polyflor, Recofloor, the UK’s award-winning vinyl flooring recycling scheme, has taken a rugby theme for this year’s event to mark the Rugby World Cup being held on home turf in the coming autumn.
Guest host, England rugby legend and former British Lions captain, Bill Beaumont, will be presenting trophies and certificates to Recofloor members who have excelled across eight award categories and helped to divert increasing volumes of vinyl flooring waste from landfill.
Once again, competition for the awards is intense and a new interactive entry system introduced for this year has been designed to make it easier than ever for more members to participate. Members can submit details online of why their company should be nominated for an award in four categories.
These categories are Construction Project of the Year; Contractor of the Year; Distributor of the Year and Drop-off Site User of the Year. Members can also nominate an individual who champions the scheme within their company for the Recofloor Champion award.
The other categories are Greatest Improver; Best Newcomer and Outstanding Achievement, plus Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards, which all reward members’ commitment, contribution and achievements in 2014.
Material collected by Recofloor’s 620-plus membership is recycled back into products, such as new flooring and traffic calming products, which benefits the environment and significantly reduces collectors’ waste disposal costs.
Recipients recognise the benefits as Recofloor’s Carla Eslava explains: “Our members eagerly look forward to the Recofloor Awards event where they can network, share expert knowledge, learn more about the scheme and, of course, celebrate their achievements together.
“We are looking forward to welcoming both existing and potential new members on the day, so please put the date in your diary,” adds Carla.
Thanks to the consistent efforts across the entire flooring supply chain; from two leading manufacturers and distributors to contractors and fitters, Recofloor continues to go from strength to strength. Since its 2009 inception, Recofloor has collected well over 2,000 tonnes of smooth offcuts, smooth uplifted vinyl and safety offcuts for recycling into new products.
