"Hey fellas, don't forget to recycle those shingles!"

Tear Da Roof Off...

...and then recycle it, please! So could go the hip hop theme song for Owens Corning's recently launched shingle recycling program. The nation-wide program will have Owen's Corning Preferred Roofers pledging to recycle asphalt shingle tear-off and Heritage Environmental Services promising dedicated and convenient tear-off drop-off centers for the contractors.

So shingles are kept out of landfills and contractors get to set a good example to homeowners by employing sustainable building practices. Sounds like a win-win to me.

In addition to reducing the millions of tons of asphalt shingles that end up in landfills each year, the recycled asphalt can be used as a cost-effective alternative to making new asphalt that will be used on roads across the country. The Asphalt Institute estimated a potential $1 billion value on recycled asphalt. Okay, so it's really win-win-win.

Are you looking into a new roof soon?
