Why Roofing Waste is a Problem and How Restoration Can Help

Published by Eileen Porzuczek on July 18, 2023

Commercial roofing tear-off waste has always been the traditional method, leading contractors to remove and dispose of millions of tons of roofing material each year. However, this traditional method is no longer sustainable with the amount of waste it contributes to landfills and the negative environmental impacts it can have.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), roofing waste accounts for about 6.5 million tons of waste in landfills each year. Waste that consists of asphalt, metal, and other materials that are often not easily biodegradable and can release harmful chemicals into the environment overtime. But shouldn’t there be a better and more sustainable option? There is.
