Luxury vinyl flooring is currently one of the most popular on the market, and many homeowners are starting to ask about its sustainability. More specifically, a question we frequently hear is whether it can be recycled, and we are going to take a deeper look at that in today’s post.
Luxury vinyl has many recycling options
Luxury vinyl floors and many of the materials they are made of are recyclable. However, it can sometimes be a task to find programs through which these materials are recycled.
Armstrong offers the On&On Floor Recycling Program, as do other companies as well. If you're looking to recycle your luxury vinyl, you can always contact your flooring manufacturer to find out if there is a program like that in your area.
Some luxury vinyl materials are already in a partially recycled state when you purchase them. If you ask specifically for products made of recycled materials, you might be surprised to find that they are more plentiful than you think.
A more non-conventional way to recycle old luxury vinyl is through a process known as “upcycling.” Upcycling is a way of taking old items and crafting something new so that old luxury vinyl materials could be used for any project.
