Just a handful building products companies are finally and smartly accepting their own left over materials, reusing and reprocessing the otherwise trash. Kleer, maker of exterior trim boards and now decking as well, is one of those leading manufacturers. They kindly provided us with this large recycle bin shown here. Everything free of charge. 


all kind of metals as shown here were taken to the junk yard.

we filled up two trailers with copper, brass, aluminum, lead, iron, and finally plain steel and took it all the way down to the Bronx (Pascap).

to this day, close to 3000 lbs of metals have been recycled for a $2000 payback.


unfortunately, the same cannot be said about roofing asphalt shingles;
we also filled two trailers with the shingles and took them all the way down to the nearest asphalt shingles recycling facility, which is located in Sratford, CT.

 Exactly 9840 lbs of shingles were recycled at a fee of $300. 




ok, these will not make us richer, but workers can generate quite a bit of waste, so why not setting up a little program - and a blue bin?!?
