Celebrate America Recycles Day

What do you recycle at home? Plastic water bottles? Cardboard? Newspaper? Glass jars? Beverage cans? Good for you!

Eco Friendly RoofToday is America Recycles Day — part of America Recycles Month — coordinated by the Keep America Beautiful organization. This group has done a terrific job of educating people on the value of recycling in the home and workplace. As a result, they report that the national recycling rate has increased every year for the past 30 years. Right now the current recycling rate is an impressive 34.5%.

At DaVinci Roofscapes we’re proud to say we do our part to recycle. If a composite slate or synthetic shake roofing tile we manufacture doesn’t meet our high standards, we recycle it into starter tiles for the roof.  We also accept and recycle back unused DaVinci polymer roofing from job sites (see Return Those DaVinci Scraps!). That means less plastic roof materials are going into landfills. Instead they’re heading right back up on the roof!
