Tarkett, a flooring and sports surface solutions company, has partnered with E.J. Welch Company, Inc. as their newest consolidator for their ReStart™ Recycling and Reclamation Program. E.J. Welch will serve Illinois, Northwest Indiana, Southeast Wisconsin and Eastern Missouri, helping to make it easier for contractors and other members of a design/build team to return installation waste material, ultimately lessening the overall impact on the environment.

E.J. Welch joins a growing group of North American distributors who have shown their commitment to recycling and reuse by becoming a consolidator and helping to facilitate the ReStart program.

Tarkett focuses on end of use rather than end of life and aims to transform waste into resources for new products of equal or better quality. The company’s ReStart Recycling and Reclamation Program allows commercial flooring job scrap (rubber, vinyl and linoleum tile and sheet, wall base, floor finishing accessories and tread-cuttings) to be collected and returned to Tarkett to be repurposed or recycled.
