This would be used to prepare material needed for large jobs that might be phased over a longer period of time.

Reclamation

More than 400 million pounds of flooring material is sent to landfills each year. And because most of it is non-biodegradable, it sits for millions of years taking up valuable space. We all have a role to play in keeping our world sustainable. When we find solutions, our responsibility is to act. Through our hundreds of manufacturing partners, we offer alternate environmentally-friendly solutions for your old flooring. At $100 per ton, feeding a landfill can be pricey. Reclamation programs allow you the option to divert your flooring from landfills with little to no cost. So not only are you greening your business and bettering the environment, you’re saving on expensive disposal charges. The choice is ultimately yours. We just make it easier to do the right thing.
