Anglo Recycling have recently contributed to the ongoing sustainability performance of the Olympic Park re-development.
As part of the creation of 700 new affordable apartments at the former Olympic Village, leading flooring contractor Axiom Contract Flooring sought an outlet for the large quantities of broadloom carpet fitting offcuts generated. On contacting Carpet Recycling UK, Axiom Contract Flooring were referred to CRUK members Anglo Recycling, resulting in a first collection of installation waste within just seven days. The off-cuts have now been reprocessed by Anglo into felt underlay with 100% recycled content.
The project is an excellent example of Carpet Recycling UK’s ability to facilitate specialist recycling services. In this high profile case, it has resulted in several tonnes of clean carpet off-cuts being reprocessed and diverted valuable raw materials from landfill to keep them within the flooring supply chain. Andy Hall of Anglo Recycling commented: “We are delighted to be given the opportunity to collect the material from the Olympic refurbishment project and help to resolve the potential landfill problem for Axiom Contract Flooring.”
