Recycle used ceilings from your renovation projects with our closed-loop recycling program.
The Armstrong Ceilings Recycling Program is an easy way for businesses to help save the environment. Since 1999, the nation’s first ceiling recycling program has diverted over 195 million square feet of old ceiling materials from going to the landfill.
That is equivalent to 1,073,000 tons of virgin raw materials saved. Those old ceiling panels are used to manufacture new Ceiling-2-Ceiling panels.
Keep used ceilings out of landfills; recycle them and be part of “Save The Ceilings”.
4 Steps to Recycle
Recycling Your Old Ceiling Panels is Simple
Develop a construction waste management plan. Include provisions for ceiling recycling in your project specifications. Download the guide specification.
Register your ceiling recycling project with the Armstrong Recycling Center:
- Call 1-877-276-7876 or
- Download, complete, and submit the Registration Form via fax or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Review building and material requirements with the Recycling Center. The building construction date, an asbestos survey and a signed Recycling Agreement are required documentation to approve your recycling project. Be sure your project is approved before you begin removal of the ceiling for recycling.
Once your project is approved, there are two options to return your ceiling panels:
Option 1: Pallets
Stack the panels on pallets, label and stretch wrap or tightly band them. Check with the Armstrong Recycling Center for bulk return methods that are available in some regions. Coordinate on-site storage and logistics. Review the section on stacking and packing. See detailed information: Recycling Requirements – Pallet.
Option 2: Container
Separate ceiling panels from other construction debris and place them in the designated recycling container. Coordinate removal of container with your local C&D partner. See detailed information: Recycling Requirements – Container.
