Sika Sarnafil Announces Recycling Project of the Year Winner

(PRWEB) May 23, 2013

Sika Sarnafil, the worldwide market leader in thermoplastic roofing and waterproofing membranes, today announced Imperial Roof Systems of Iowa as the Recycling Project of the Year winner for professionalism and dedication to quality during the re-roofing of the SuperTarget retail store in Olathe, Kansas. Imperial Roof Systems is a Sika Sarnafil Elite contractor and one of Target’s Preferred Tier One roofing contractors.

“Imperial Roof Systems is committed to sustainable building practices and they are a worthy recipient of our Recycling Project of the Year Award,” said Brian Whelan, Senior Vice President of Sika Sarnafil.

Imperial Roof Systems has re-roofed close to 20 Target stores across multiple states and has torn off more than 2.5 million square feet of older vinyl roofing. For this store, Imperial Roof Systems removed 175,000 square feet of old vinyl membrane and as part of an ongoing collaboration between Target and Sika Sarnafil, the roofing waste was not disposed of in landfills; rather, it was sent to Sika Sarnafil for recycling as part of the company’s industry-wide PVC Roof Membrane Recycling Program. Sika Sarnafil has processed nearly 40 million pounds of membrane since instituting the program in 2005. As a leader in roof recycling, Sika Sarnafil is the only roofing manufacturer to recycle old roofing membrane into new roofing membrane and whose recycled content claims have been UL certified.

The PVC Roof Membrane Recycling Program is streamlined and simple, making it easy for contractors and building owners to participate. Sika Sarnafil ships containers and pallets to contractors free of charge. The recycled materials are simply loaded and turned over to Sika Sarnafil for processing. The slight additional labor cost involved for contractors to remove, consolidate and prepare the old vinyl roof surface for shipping can be offset by the reduction in dumpster and disposal fees.

Target has a longstanding sustainability plan in place and has made a serious commitment to reducing its carbon footprint. Toward that end, the corporation is striving to become a zero waste company.
