ABSTRACT
The article discusses the ceiling tile recycling programs that produce quality products and environmental benefits. CertainTeed Ceilings developed construction recycling programs that accept used mineral fiber ceiling tiles. Providing an environmentally responsible method of construction-waste disposal is one of the many benefits of the ceiling tile recycling programs. It is claimed that similar jobsite-waste recycling programs for gypsum wallboard and metal ceiling grid are both successful.
