Close The Recycling Loop With A Metal Roof

October 23, 2010 | Filed under: Articles, Benefits of Metal Roofing

In recent years, most people have become more aware of and careful about separating the recyclable materials out of their trash. We all keep our special recycling bin for materials like aluminum, paper, steel, and plastic and we haul that bin out to the curb once a week.

But what happens to those materials after we take them to the curb?

Aluminum and steel are two of the world’s most widely recycled materials. Today’s metal roofing systems give homeowners a choice that allows them to close the loop by purchasing a roof that is as much as 95% recycled in content.

When you think about it, there really are few major purchases we can make which have such incredibly high recycled content. This makes metal roofing a great way for homeowners to promote recycling and make it all be truly environmentally friendly.

The Aluminum Association recently released some incredible updated statistics on the state of aluminum recycling. Included in this data is that the aluminum can recycling rate now exceeds 57% in the United States.
