TRM035: Roof Recycling and Landfill Diversion

Over eight million tons of roofing tear-off waste is dumped in the US landfills each year. Most major metropolitan areas now have mandatory recycling of construction and demolition waste. Corporations are increasingly moving towards building designs that include recyclable, or zero –waste materials for maintenance items such as roofing. This presentation will assist designers in navigating zero landfill and recycling projects for new construction and retrofit commercial roofing systems.
