How does one dispose of laminate flooring? Can laminate be recycled or burnt?

Disposing of laminate is no problem at all. Leftover installation materials and other parts or old flooring can be disposed of in your normal household waste collection. Complete floors, which you wish to dispose of, on the other hand, should be taken directly to a local landfill site. Thanks to new technological processes, laminate flooring is even recyclable. Up to 85 per cent of the mass of laminate flooring can be put back into the manufacturing process in the form of wood chips or fibers.

Even though laminate flooring consists of 80 per cent wood, they cannot be safely burnt or incinerated just like other wood products. The top layer contains an aluminum oxide coating that would burn into the air, which can be harmful if breathed in.
