Many CertainTeed roofing products are manufactured with pre- and post-consumer recycled content including slag, stone granules, corrugated mixed paper and sludge. The overall pre- and post-consumer recycled content of our roofing products is between 1-50%. Integrating these materials into our products reduces landfill waste and carbon emissions.
CertainTeed diverts over 250,000 tons/year of slag, stone granules, corrugated mixed paper and sludge from landfills by recycling this material into our products.
In addition to landfill waste reduction, the use of recycled materials in our products reduces the release of CO2 from the extraction and processing of virgin raw materials that are used to manufacture the roofing products.
CertainTeed is committed to resource conservation. Our roofing manufacturing facilities recycle close to 90% of the production waste into asphalt materials used for the construction of roads. We also integrate recycled content into many of our packaging materials including corrugated rolls and kraft paper.
