At North American Roofing, we take pride in meeting our customer's needs in the most environmentally responsible and resource-efficient manner. Tear-off waste from a typical re-roofing project can generate enough construction debris to fill three large community swimming pools.
We'll track all of the re-roofing material from your job site(s) and provide real-time updates outlining the total number of pounds and square feet of material diverted from landfills.
Construction waste accounts for 36% of all landfill waste, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. "Recycling construction and demolition materials conserves landfill space, reduces the environmental impact of producing new materials, creates jobs, and can reduce overall building project expense through avoided purchase/disposal costs."
Together, we can leave a lighter environmental footprint by recycling many types of roofing debris. During tear-off, if the roof contains the following materials, North American Roofing will arrange to transfer the waste to a recycling center.
Every year, Americans are adding 100 million tons of waste to our nation's landfills. Contamination from overloaded and poorly designed landfills can leach into water tables and pollute the surrounding environment. By diverting roofing debris to recycling centers, North American Roofing is actively engaged in reducing environmental degradation.
Through our waste recycling program, we're diminishing the impact on landfills and providing the materials to make any number of things like picture frames, walking pads, equipment covers, shipping materials, and artificial athletic fields. Recycling roofing wastes spares valuable resources for future use.
We're ready to team up with you to reduce the environmental impact of construction debris, while working toward our common goal of preserving resources.
When it's time for your old roof to go, give North American Roofing a call at 1-888-517-3555. We'll inspect your roof and let you know how much of the debris qualifies for recycling. Together, we can reduce landfill waste, provide future generations with a healthier environment, and get your building water-tight again!
