At Tarkett, products have no longer an end of life but an end of use. We aim to transform waste into resources or new products at equivalent or even better quality.
We collect post-installation and post-used flooring through our ReStart® program. We also recycle materials from other industries. We use recycled materials from our own production sites in our various recycling centers.
Progress: Through our flooring collection program ReStart®, between 2010 and 2017, we collected 99,000 tons of flooring in Europe and North America (collection of post-installation and post-consumer flooring: vinyl, linoleum or carpet).

We have developed a take-back program, ReStart®, to help customers to manage their flooring waste from job installation, collecting off-cut and used flooring. In order to boost this program, Tarkett is working on two main drivers: implement with partners cost-effective local take-back logistics; eco-design flooring systems that can be easily uninstalled and disassembled for cost-effective sorting.
