Armstrong World Industries (OTC: ACKHQ) announced that it has reclaimed its 10,000,000th square foot of discarded ceiling tiles as part of its Ceiling Recycling Program. The 10,000,000th square foot was received at the company's Beaver Falls, PA plant as part of a shipment that contained 57,143 square feet of discarded ceiling tiles from an office renovation project at the General Motors Tower in Dearborn, MI. Armstrong is the world's largest producer of acoustical ceiling tiles. Its recycling program enables building owners to ship old ceilings from renovation projects to an Armstrong ceiling plant as an alternative to landfill disposal. Under the program, Armstrong even pays freight costs for shipping the old ceilings, which it uses as raw materials in the manufacture of new ceilings. More than 3,500 tons of construction waste has been diverted from landfills since the program began in June 1999.
