Duro-Last® receives recycling award

Duro-Last Inc., Saginaw, Mich., received an Excellence in Recycling Award from the Michigan Recycling Coalition during the coalition's annual conference in May.

The award is given annually to one Michigan organization that demonstrates leadership and excellence in recycling and waste diversion. Duro-Last was recognized for its ongoing efforts to recycle manufacturing scrap and aged roofing materials into flooring products. The company also decreased the amount of landfill waste produced at its facilities by removing STYROFOAM™ cups, introducing recycling stations that accept 15 types of material and installing water bottle refilling stations.
