CRUK to further reduce textile flooring waste

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2023-02-26 17:44:45 – United Kingdom

Carpet Recycling UK (CRUK) is requesting additional involvement from the construction, facilities management, and flooring industries, to minimize further textile flooring waste, such as commercial broadloom carpet, carpet tiles, and underlay.

Working with 80% of the UK's carpet and textile flooring manufacturers and distributors, the non-profit group claims, puts it in a strong position to speak on behalf of the industry in conversations about favorable government policy results.

Balsan, Betap, Brintons Carpets, Condor Group, Cormar Carpets, ege Carpets, Furlong Flooring, Gradus, Headlam Group, IVC Commercial, Likewise Floors, Milliken, Modulyss, Rawson Carpet Solutions, Shaw, Tarkett, and Victoria Group are among the 17 core members of CRUK that provide support. They are voluntarily accepting producer responsibility for the goods they put on the market and working on cutting down on waste both during production and for their clients, which helps to lower costs.

CRUK manager Adnan Zeb-Khan, said that in their 15th year, an 80% increase in industry support gives weight to their representation of the sector and recognizes the achievements of their members and wider network. Going forward, businesses will need to show reductions in the use of new resources, design goods with recycling in mind, incorporate techniques for identifying the material composition, and take into account reverse logistics for take-back and recycling outcomes. From single-polymer lines to items created with recycled material, their members are making remarkable achievements in the development of products with recycling in mind.

The CRUK offers a wide network of experts to the construction industry, developers, and facilities companies interested in sustainable solutions for flooring waste.

 Zeb-Khan said that carpet and textile flooring trash is already being separated for recycling and reuse by flooring contractors working on new residences. When applying for new work, they take into account the resource and expense savings they have made as well as the advantages of their relationship with them.

Saint Flooring, a CRUK member, adopted waste material recycling across all of its national sites in 2019. The company's financial director is David Heafey. He claims that by reusing and recycling waste items, including carpets, CRUK is able to realize yearly savings of up to £170,000 per year on disposal costs. Being a member of Carpet Recycling UK helped them discover partners to recycle the carpet. He doesn't think they would have had this success without becoming a member.
