ASTM Unveils Standard on Recycling Roofing Materials

01/10/2017 |

The new regulation will help FMs who want to minimize their environmental impact by eliminating waste during roof replacement

A new standard from ASTM International is primed to reduce the amount of used roofing materials that ends up in landfills. ASTM’s Committee D08 on Roofing and Waterproofing developed the new standard, which will soon be available as D8013, Guide for Establishing a Recycle Program for Roof Covers.

The new regulation will help FMs who want to minimize their environmental impact by eliminating waste during roof replacement. The standard will help them and their contractors compare the costs for disposal versus recycling. Roof manufacturers will use the standard to analyze whether recycled roofing materials would be cost-effective in the development of new roofing products.

To purchase standards, visit ASTM’s Standards and Publications page and search by the standard designation. ASTM welcomes participation in the development of its standards.
