Recycling? You have the will. We have the way.
We can all agree that recycling safe materials is a good thing. It preserves the world’s natural resources and is a major contributor to reducing climate change. But doing the right thing isn’t always easy. How can you be sure your post-installation or used flooring comes back for a second life and doesn’t end up as landfill?
The answer: leave it to us! Our hassle-free flooring take-back and recycling program, ReStart®, will take away your used flooring and provide you with a certificate showing the volume of material diverted from landfill.
To us, every scrap we can recycle or divert from landfill makes a positive impact on our environment. Of course, the materials we recycle must meet the exceptional health and safety standards we set for ourselves (well above the industry standards), but if there’s any material we can’t make safe use of, we know that someone else can. It’s why we partner with other industries to make sure that wherever possible, nothing goes to waste.
How to join ReStart®
It’s easy to become a member of the ReStart® program:
Tarkett has collected more than 112,000 tons of flooring through ReStart® from 2010 to 2021 (post-installation and post-consumer flooring: vinyl, linoleum, carpet)
15% of Tarkett's raw materials are recycled materials. Our global objective is to increase the share of recycled raw materials to 30% by 2030.
Recycled materials are a positive indicator when aiming for green building certification, like LEED, WELL, ILFI and BREEAM
