Chagrin Falls, Ohio—Tarkett, the worldwide leader in innovative and sustainable flooring and sports surface solutions, recently announced the winners of its ReStart™ Award. The award is presented annually to honor the architect, designer, installer, distributor and/or end user whose project has successfully diverted the largest quantity of flooring from landfills using the company’s ReStart Recycling and Reclamation Program. This year’s award recipients—Walmart, Linron Company and M. Frank Higgins—were recognized during the company’s second annual Sustainability Summit in Cleveland.
“ReStart allows building owners and specifiers to make environmental responsibility a practical part of the way they do business,” said Diane Martel, vice president, environmental planning and strategy for Tarkett. “Often it is costly to remove waste from the job site but with ReStart they are getting a massive amount of flooring job scrap off the site at no additional cost, while minimizing the impact on the environment.”
