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.
