Armstrong Launches Ceiling Tile Recycling Program

Armstrong World Industries, of Lancaster, Pennsylvania has launched an innovative and much-needed program to recycle acoustic ceiling tiles.

The program will defray some of the costs of ceiling tile disposal, while helping to reduce pressure on landfills. On a large commercial building project, it is not unusual to generate nearly one pound of ceiling tile waste per square foot of floor area during remodeling. Mineral fiber ceiling tile is readily recyclable, but recycling the used tile is almost never done.
