Russell Bennett

Recycling Director
As a member of Tarkett’s Sustainability and Environmental Group Russell oversees internal recycling initiatives and the ReStart Reclamation Program. Through the ReStart program, available for all Tarkett products, material is re-introduced into the raw material stream, reducing our dependency on the planets resources. This program includes Architect/Design samples, installation waste and post-consumer flooring.

Russell’s recycling career began in 1994 as a principle in a plastics recycling/processing company. That company’s assets were sold to Tarkett (Tandus Centiva) in 1999 and Russell began working with a team to create the world’s first third party certified closed loop carpet recycling facility. Russell works to help ensure Cradle to Cradle (C2C) principles of sourcing good materials and that environmentally friendly processes are implemented and maintained for their flooring products.
