Disposal & recycling
No environmental pollution
Because it is simply clicked together using a clever system, laminate flooring is easy to take up again. It’s also equally simple to dispose of. Individual boards and leftovers from laying the floor can be disposed of along with normal household waste. Larger volumes, for example entire floors, should be taken to a residual waste or recycling facility.
No special waste
Laminate is bulky waste and can be used for material or thermal recycling. Because used laminate flooring is not graded as special waste, there is no expensive disposal involved. On the contrary, in theory you can even burn laminate flooring yourself as it is mostly made of wood and does not give off any harmful substances. However, please always observe the regulations that apply in your local area.
Don’t dispose – recycle!
There are now new processes that allow laminate flooring to be partially recycled. Once broken down into chips, most of the material can be returned to the production process. The chips can even be used as a growing medium in agriculture and gardening.
As you can see, laminate is all-round feel-good flooring.
