S&D Flooring is the first company in the history of the Recofloor scheme to win two awards in one year at our 2017 awards; they won both the Brand Ambassador and Outstanding Achievement awards.

S&D have been nothing short of exemplary, in 2016 they collected the largest volume of material by any contractor (14.6 tonnes) and it was all good quality material with no contamination issues whatsoever. S&D are on track this year to smash last year's target.

Recofloor Awards

Recofloor-Bronze Award

S&D Flooring were delighted to win the 2016 Best Newcomer Award and it's spurred us on to do even better for the future. This year, our collections are already up on 2015. We actively promote our Recofloor membership to all our customers and through our van branding and website. We have refurbishment contracts with our local council and a partnership with a commercial modular building company so offering a vinyl flooring recycling service ticks all the right boxes for these clients. Recofloor helps us to differentiate our company in a really positive way.
