Armstrong Names Target Recycler of Year

Lancaster, PA, May 21, 2013 -- Armstrong World Industries named retailer Target as its 2012 Flooring Recycler of the Year.

Armstrong’s award recognizes organizations that make significant environmental contributions by recycling VCT materials during demolition projects, resulting in waste reduction in landfill materials, transportation, and energy.

Target was selected because it recycled over 1.2 million pounds of vinyl composition tile (VCT) from multiple stores throughout the U.S. in 2012.

Target began implementing recycling of VCT in 2011 under the Armstrong VCT Recycling Program.
