One of the reasons we love GAF shingles is the company’s dedication to protecting the environment. Last May, GAF announced their Tuscaloosa, Alabama facility is its second asphalt shingle plant in North America to achieve Waste Diversion from Landfill certification from GreenCircle.
One of GAF’s goals is to reduce waste – preventing excess materials from entering landfills. They have partnered with recyclers and other organizations with similar initiatives to create protocols allowing them to reuse materials internally that some companies may deem as scrap. At the Tuscaloosa facility, GAF was able to set their waste diversion rate to 94 percent!
Sustainability and transparency are cornerstones of our business strategy at GAF,” said Gregg Baran, director of specialty manufacturing at GAF. “GreenCircle certification verifies our claims and helps us showcase our waste leadership in a way that resonates with our customers and employees.”
