TACOMA, WA, September 06, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Local Roofing Contractor Guardian Roofing has made a commitment to go greener and be more environmentally friendly into 2020 and beyond. The Auburn based company has recycled 370 tons (that's 740,000 lbs.) since the start of the new year and they have no plans to stop. "Most of us at Guardian are outdoor enthusiasts," say's Guardian President Lori Swanson. "We love being in nature and want to ensure we do our part to keep the earth healthy and sustainable."
By partnering with DTG Recycling (the largest commercial recycler of construction, industrial and manufacturing waste in the PNW) Guardian is able to lessen their environmental footprint. The materials recycled range from basic cardboard and plastics, all the way to asphalt shingles, shake, metal, and tile. Sorting of these materials sends them to their respective destinations; wood shingles and shakes become fuel for mills, old cardboard remade into new cardboard, brick and asphalt shingles can be repurposed for the paving of roads, and plastics, depending on their type can be recycled into new plastic, or reborn as clothing through DTG's own Planet Obsessed clothing line.
Taking their commitment to recycling a step further, Guardian has earned Owen's Corning "Pink Goes Green" accreditation by pledging to keep shingle and shingle materials out of landfills. "Guardian doesn't just want to extend the life of your roof," says Swanson. "We want to extend the life of the earth as well. By changing our practices maybe we can contribute to a greener future."
