Ecore customers can send back old or remnant recycled rubber and cork products to Ecore’s Lancaster, PA manufacturing facility. Ecore takes this reclaimed material and makes it into new flooring, underlayments, and industrial products. Material is accepted on a case-by-case basis.
The Redeux process is incredibly unique due to the fact that Ecore products are already made from recycled materials at their inception and can then be "re-recycled" again and again. Ecore is proud to be able to reuse our waste, reduce the amount of products going into landfills, and recycle; therefore, significantly extending the life of each product we manufacture.
Due to a proprietary process and complete quality control, no integrity is lost manufacturing new products from recycled materials. Quality is held to high standards. Due to Ecore’s own recycling capabilities, nothing is outsourced. These capabilities also reduce the use of fossil fuels by eliminating shipping to a separate rubber recycling company.
Recycled rubber and cork products that have been accepted into the Redeux reclamation program are sorted. Carpet products crated using Ecore’s patented Itstru technology are first sent through a liberating machine capable of removing the fiber wear layer from the recycled rubber backing. All materials accepted into the Redeux program are shredded, cleaned, and ground for the next generation of recycled rubber flooring, underlayment, and industrial products.
This guide is designed to make you aware of all of the program parameters, so you can better inform your building owners and partners during the decision making process.
Skids of returned product should be shipped to Ecore at the following address:
The customer must pay for the return shipping to Ecore.
Customer must provide shipping information with the date when the material is scheduled to arrive back at Ecore.
Please note, if all of these Guidelines are not met and the material arrives at Ecore, the shipment will be refused at the sender's expense.
Note: Please include the project name, location and contact information so that we can send you a letter stating the amount of product diverted from landfills for your records. If you do not include your project name, location and contact information, you will not receive a letter.
Ecore's product samples are now able to be returned to us for recycling and reuse. The same reclamation process applies to samples as to our floors.
