Forbo Recycling Program Attracts Distributors

Bramhall, England, March 20, 2013 -- Distributors and contractors across the UK are signing up to Back to the Floor, a new collection and recycling program for installation off-cuts of Forbo flooring products.

Managed by resource recovery expert Axion Consulting, this program collects and reprocesses smooth vinyl, cushioned vinyl, Marmoleum and Flotex installation off-cuts for recycling back into new Forbo products.

Off-cuts are collected in colour-coded polythene bags and bulk bags which can be collected from site. In addition, Marmoluem off-cuts can also be dropped off, free of charge, at participating distributors.

Among the first distributors to sign up are Headlam Scotland, Birch Distribution with three sites.

Back to the Floor Scheme Manager Jane Gardner, of Axion Consulting, said: “Early interest in the scheme has been very encouraging and shows there is demand and a need for this service from main contractors and sub-contractors in closing the recycling loop for this type of flooring.
