Armstrong Flooring is the recipient of the 2016 Professional Recyclers of Pennsylvania (PROP) Outstanding Achievement Award. The award recognizes companies for their commitment to recycling, waste reduction, and the reuse of materials.
The honor is a direct result of the Pennsylvania-based company’s recently reimagined On&On Floor Recycling Program, in which flooring is recycled in a closed-loop, post-consumer stream. It is the first program of its kind to recycle installed Armstrong flooring products. The company also won the award in 2013.
This ongoing effort offers building owners and contractors an alternative to traditional disposal and a flexible, end-of-life recycling solution for vinyl flooring products, according to Armstrong. On&On has already diverted 25-plus million pounds of post-consumer flooring, representing 12,500 tons of landfill material. This has significant short and long-term environmental benefits, including waste reduction, greenhouse gas reduction, water conservation, energy conservation, and raw material conservation.
