FeRFA, the Resin Flooring Association, has scooped the Environmental Initiative Award at the Trade Association Forum (TAF’s) Best Practice Awards for its innovative new Recycling Scheme
The award was presented by ex-England rugby player Martin Bayfield at the TAF’s Annual Networking and Awards Dinner on 7th July 2011 in the magnificent setting of Plaisterer’s Hall, City of London.
Now in its ninth year, the event recognises, rewards and promotes best practice amongst Trade Associations in the UK. The Award was accepted from Martin Bayfield by FeRFA CEO, Helen McGachie, and Administrator, Lisa Hennessey.
The recycling scheme is a major initiative to bring contractors and manufacturers together in a collection and recycling programme for waste packaging. The great benefit of this scheme is that it is having an immediate and positive impact on the environment , it saves money and resources by managing waste more efficiently, and is an industry first through the introduction of a closed loop system to re-use waste plastic packaging. This packaging (hazardous and non hazardous) is collected, decontaminated and reprocessed for future use, with up to 100% of waste being recycled.
