In case you missed the news, VSI helped the Northeast Ohio Vinyl Siding Recycling Coalition – a group of over 50 members including product manufacturers, recyclers, distributors, retailers, contractors and the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District – officially launch earlier this month.
The Coalition’s primary goal is growing awareness and action around recycling vinyl siding. The Coalition is a partnership focused on increasing the amount of post-consumer recycling of vinyl siding in Northeast Ohio.
Helping to complete the vinyl siding lifecycle can be as simple as finding a vinyl siding recycling center. Whether you’re a professional remodeler or a homeowner, most used, unused and new vinyl siding from a job can be recycled at a vinyl siding recycling center.
As the new Coalition began meeting over the past five months in preparation for launch, it became clear that the biggest challenges are creating a stronger understanding that vinyl siding can indeed be recycled and and developing the logistics to get waste to recyclers.
The Coalition uses this infographic which communicates and educates about both issues.
VSI is proud to collaborate with our industry colleagues to be a part of this historic Coalition. We encourage members and their networks to keep checking in as we continue to add more locations that are helping to recycle scrap vinyl siding back in the manufacturing process.
