Home Press Release Armstrong recycling program to include LVT

Lancaster, Pa.—Armstrong Commercial Flooring’s recycling program has been expanded to include Armstrong LVT. The expansion builds upon the success of its recycling program for vinyl composition tile (VCT), which has recovered more than six million pounds of post-consumer VCT since 2012. Armstrong LVT and qualifying competitors’ LVT products will be recycled into new flooring product at the company’s Stillwater, Okla. and Lancaster, Pa. manufacturing facilities.

“Our products are designed with recyclability in mind,” said Amy Costello, sustainability manager for Armstrong Commercial Flooring. “Our closed-loop recycling program provides an end-of-life alternative, helping to conserve and protect natural resources while reducing the environmental footprint of our products.”
