Mayfield Floors celebrates double award win
Specialist flooring contractors for the education sector, Mayfield Floors is celebrating its success after winning two coveted environmental awards. The business picked up a Gold Award and the prestigious Contractor of the Year Award at the national Recofloor Awards 2013, which were held recently at Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Warwickshire.
Open to flooring contractors, companies and distributors, the annual Recofloor Awards recognises those businesses that have made an outstanding contribution to the Recofloor vinyl take-back scheme. This scheme - which was established by flooring manufacturers, Altro and Polyflor - aims to ensure waste vinyl flooring is recycled and diverted from landfill.
Throughout 2012, the Recofloor scheme successfully recovered over 450 tonnes of waste flooring, including uplifted vinyl flooring and post-installation offcuts. This material has since been recycled and used to manufacture new flooring as well as traffic management products such as traffic cones and road sign bases.
Mayfield Floors, which works with customers across the UK, received the Recofloor Contractor of the Year award as a result of its exemplary efforts in communicating the environmental benefits of the scheme to both fitters and clients. It also received its third consecutive Gold Award for collecting 15.5 tonnes of vinyl flooring waste for recycling.
Speaking of the double award win, Anthony Francis, Managing Director at Mayfield Floors, said: “As a business, Mayfield Floors is committed to offering products and a standard of service that sets the business apart. This includes going above and beyond to find new ways to reduce our environmental impact and to increase wider environmental awareness.
“We’re delighted that our efforts as part of the Recofloor scheme have been recognised with these two awards. We look forward to building on that as we continue to champion the need for more sustainable products and working practices across the flooring industry.”
