Roof Recycling and Landfill Diversion (Webinar recording)


Recycling roofing materials is easy and inexpensive and helps your bid stand out. More than 8 million tons of roofing tear-off waste is dumped into U.S. landfills each year, but more than 90 percent of it could be recycled. Most cities are enacting mandatory recycling of construction and demolition waste (including roof tear-offs), and landfill fees continue to rise. In response, building owners are increasingly demanding zero-waste materials for maintenance items such as roofing.

In this presentation, Elizabeth Hart, manager of sustainability program development for Tremco Roofing & Building Maintenance, and Joanne Rodriguez, director of sustainable and strategic initiatives for Tremco Roofing & Building Maintenance, assist contractors in navigating zero-waste landfill and recycling projects for commercial (low-slope) roofing tear-offs with a focus on how to enhance your business and market identity through landfill diversion.
