1.1 This guide provides information for the development of a program to reduce the amount of roofing materials destined to land fill and instead create a program to recycle the roof covers. The recycled roof covers may either be reprocessed back into new roof covers or other roofing products or other products. This guide does not comment on the use of or the inclusion of other recycled or recovered materials that may be used to increase the total amount of recycle material. 1.2 This guide addresses terminology, logistics, quality assurance, separation, or segregation in the recycling process and materials. 1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the application of regulatory limitations prior to use.
To reduce the amount of building materials going to land fill, this guide will offer an option for removing and recycling roof covers to be used as material for new roof covers or new roofing products or used in other products. The goal is to reduce the amount of landfill material. The users will include owners, specifiers, manufacturers, and possibly government agencies
