Polyflor SA winning the “Innovation in PVC Recycling” Award at the 2017 Vinyl SA Conference in Sandton on Wednesday 7th June was indeed an important milestone, both a proud and humbling moment, validating the forward-thinking initiative led by CEO Tandy Coleman in launching the Polyflor Recycling Vinyl Flooring programme.

Polyflor SA’s vision when launching the vinyl recycling initiative at the end of 2016 was to involve as many players in the vinyl flooring industry to participate in this “zero vinyl flooring to landfill” concept. To date, close on 6 tonnes of clean vinyl flooring has been collected and sent to our recyclers for the manufacture of items such as pipes, cables, shoe soles, car mats and road cones, bringing Polyflor SA closer to their target of 15 tonnes by the end of 2017.

There are a number of Johannesburg based flooring contractors participating, the goal is to find recyclers in all major centres, enlisting more flooring contractors to be involved and turning this into an industry initiative by including other vinyl suppliers. The aim is to make this scheme self-funding and possibly even profitable

Ideally, we would like to encourage specifiers to include recycling of project vinyl flooring products in the preambles of the BOQ

At the end of the day, the ultimate goal is to make thishttps://info.polyflor.co.za/news/topic/sustainability the only way vinyl flooring is disposed of throughout SA.
