Owens Corning recycles shingles

Owens Corning announced that it will provide a new program that simplifies recycling asphalt shingles for its Preferred Roofing Contractors. The Company is the first roofing manufacturer to connect contractors with convenient recycling facilities through a national strategic alliance.

Based on a pilot conducted in Indiana, Owens Corning will roll out the program nationally, starting in the Midwest. Contractors pledge to recycle their shingle tear-offs. In addition to keeping shingle waste out of landfills, contractors benefit by promoting sustainable business practices to homeowners.

Owens Corning is working with Heritage Environmental Services which will provide dedicated, convenient drop-off centers that will recycle and process shingle tear-offs.
