Tarkett's ReStart programme


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?

Tarkett's ReStart take back and recycling programme

The answer: leave it to us! Our hassle-free flooring take-back and recycling program, ReStart®, will take it all away for recycling and provide you with certification of the amount of material you contributed. Linoleum and vinyl off-cuts from installation? We’ll take those. Your old click or loose-lay vinyl flooring or your old carpet flooring? Don’t worry, we’ll take that too. We’ll even take away old carpet flooring made by one of our competitors. That’s just how we roll.

To us, every scrap we save and recycle is making a positive difference to 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.

Just another way we're
Doing Good. Together.

How to join ReStart®

It’s easy to become a member of the ReStart® program:

The ReStart programme: how it all works

1. First, contact the ReStart® program at restart.TNA@tarkett.com.

2. We’ll send you a ReStart® container with everything you need to collect the unwanted scraps or old flooring.

3. Fill the bags with clean, post-installation offcuts or stack your old carpet tiles on pallets.

4. Let us know when material is ready for pick up, and we'll coordinate the rest.

Once we’ve collected the waste, we’ll either recycle it at one of our dedicated recycling centers and turn it into high-quality raw material for new Tarkett flooring, or send it to our partner for use in another industry.
