Lancaster, Pa.–Armstrong Flooring has received the 2016 Professional Recyclers of Pennsylvania (PROP) Outstanding Achievement Award for its recently reimagined On&On Floor Recycling Program, in which flooring is recycled in a closed-loop, post-consumer stream. It is the first program of its kind to recycle installed Armstrong flooring products. The company previously won the award in 2013.
The PROP Outstanding Achievement Award recognizes companies for their commitment to recycling, waste reduction and the reuse of materials, all of which are integral components to the Armstrong Flooring On&On Floor Recycling Program. This ongoing effort offers building owners and contractors an alternative to traditional disposal and a flexible, end-of-life recycling solution for vinyl flooring products. On&On has already diverted 25+ million pounds of post-consumer flooring, representing 12,500 tons of landfill material, and has significant short and long-term environmental benefits.
