Armstrong® Ceilings Recycling Program Marks 20 Years of Diverting Used Ceiling Panels from Landfills

LANCASTER, Pa., Nov. 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Armstrong® Ceilings Recycling Program, the first and longest-running program of its kind in the commercial ceilings industry, marks 20 years of diverting used ceiling panels away from landfills.Launched in 1999, the Ceilings Recycling Program has recycled more than 200 million square feet of used ceiling panels, saving more than one million tons of virgin raw materials and preventing more than 100,000 tons of construction waste from being deposited in landfills.An Alternative to Landfill Disposal
The Armstrong Ceilings Recycling Program offers commercial building owners and contractors an alternative to landfill disposal by taking back discarded ceiling panels from renovation and demolition projects and upcycling them into new ceiling panels in a closed-loop manufacturing process. New panels made with these materials are identified as Ceiling-2-Ceiling™ panels and contain a high level of post-consumer recycled content.
Throughout its 20-year history, the Recycling Program has helped companies divert used ceiling panels away from landfills, helping meet waste diversion goals while saving money on container costs and landfill fees.Lessens Impact on Environment
By finding a responsible end-of-life solution for its ceiling products, Armstrong World Industries has eliminated waste, lessened its impact on the environment, and reduced the environmental footprint of the ceilings industry overall.
The Armstrong Recycling Savings Calculator helps businesses compare costs of recycling versus landfilling, and the Armstrong Environmental Impact Calculator measures the environmental savings that can result from ceiling recycling.For more information about the Armstrong Ceilings Recycling Program and the three-step process involved in registering a renovation project for recycling, visit Chat live or call the Armstrong Ceilings Recycling Center at 877-276-7876 if help is needed.About Armstrong World Industries
