ReSource Commercial Flooring Network has taken on Roppe's IMPACT rubber recycling program as part of ReSource's Ecollect environmental initiative. Ecollect urges ReSource's network of nearly 100 independent commercial flooring contractors across the U.S. to divert waste material from the landfill.

"Partnering with Roppe's IMPACT program allows ReSource members to expand their sustainability efforts to include the recycling of rubber products, further reducing waste sent to landfills," said Ken Daniels, ReSource vp.

Roppe's IMPACT program reuses reclaimed materials in a variety of products, including municipal landscaping mulches, playground surfacing and rubber crumb for athletic fields and other applications.

"We are pleased to have ReSource as a partner in the effort to promote green product initiatives that will benefit the industry and the environment," noted Rick Rollins, Roppe Holding Co.'s director of specifications.
