Armstrong Awarded California Stewardship Infinity Arrow Award for VCT Recycling Program

The California Product Stewardship Council has awarded Armstrong Commercial Flooring with the 2013 Infinity Award, in recognition for the company’s Vinyl Composition Tile (VCT) Flooring Recycling Program. The award was presented in Pasadena, CA, during the 37th Annual Conference of the California Resource Recovery Association.

How the VCT Recycling Program Works
The Armstrong VCT Recycling Program is the first program of its kind to recycle not only Armstrong VCT flooring products, but qualifying competitor VCT products as well. The program enables building owners to send VCT flooring tiles from projects undergoing renovation to an Armstrong recycling facility as an alternative to landfill disposal.

Under the program, VCT flooring is recycled in a closed-loop, post-consumer stream with reclaimed material incorporated into new flooring products. Since 2009, Armstrong has successfully reclaimed and recycled over four million pounds of post-consumer VCT, representing 2,000 tons of diverted landfill material. Armstrong has regional recycling facilities in California, Illinois, and Mississippi.
