A little ceiling can go a long way. The Greenville County School District in Greenville, SC recycled 100,000 square feet of old ceiling tile and made a big difference. The Armstrong Ceiling Recycling Program has recycled over 100 million square feet of old ceiling tiles in its’ first 10 years- diverting over 50,000 tons from the landfill. Help close the loop by including ceiling recycling in your next specification

See the difference you can make difference with our Ceiling Recycling Environmental Impact Calculator!

Consider the savings of only one ton of material:

  • 456kg CO2 equivalents of greenhouse gas emitted, the global impact of not driving a car 3,675 miles
  • 11 tons of virgin raw materials, which saves 1,892 gallons of potable water
  • 1,390 kWh electricity, the monthly energy to power a home for 1.4 months


This cradle-to-cradle process is a natural extension of our use of recycled materials and environmentally compatible manufacturing process that reduces our environmental footprint. Join us as we continue to refine and shape the program to make it easier for you to integrate into your building plans.
