Wayne, N.J.-based GAF announced a significant expansion of its efforts to support post-consumer shingle recycling. Building on its Certified Green Roofer program, which has more than 100 members, GAF has made a multiyear commitment to sponsor the Find-A-Recycler section of ShingleRecycling.org.
ShingleRecycling.org is the leading resource for information about recycling asphalt shingles.
“Our goal is to make it easier for contractors to recycle asphalt shingles,” said Martin Grohman, director of sustainability at GAF. “We want to do that two ways -- by recognizing and rewarding roofers who recycle for their efforts; and now by making shingle recycling yards easy to find.”
In addition to a state-by-state database of locations where roofing contractors can recycle their tear-offs, ShingleRecycling.org includes a wealth of technical information to encourage recycling. The new sponsorship is expected to improve searchability of the database, which already includes more than 150 listings nationwide, and provide for greater frequency of updates.
