April 22 is here ... the 45th anniversary of Earth Day! Celebrated worldwide, Earth Day focuses our attention on taking steps to save our environment by doing smart things like recycling.
At DaVinci Roofscapes we encourage recycling in two ways.
First, we recycle polymer roofing tiles at our Kansas facility. Any composite slate or composite shake tiles that fail to meet our finished high standards are recycled for use in our starter tiles. Since every DaVinci composite roofing tile is 100% recyclable, this means we use all of our materials, helping keep roof tiles out of landfills.
Second, we have two recycling programs (see Return Those DaVinci Scraps!) that provide a way for roofers to return scraps, cuttings and unused synthetic roofing material to our plant for recycling. Waste products from a job site can be returned to our plant in the first program for recycling ... and in the second program expired tiles (those older than 50+ years old) can be returned for recycling.
Just as it's important that all our sustainable roofing products are Made in America (see DaVinci Roofscapes Applauds "American Made Matters Day"), it's also important that we keep our earth as clean and healthy as possible. So, when it comes time to celebrating Earth Day this year know that the team at DaVinci is with you ... in spirit and in our recycling efforts!
