AZEK Pavers, which offer a hardscape solution for backyards and driveways, as well as rooftop resurfacing for green roofs, restaurant and condo decks, has hit a milestone by diverting more than a half million scrap tires from landfills. Made with up to 95 percent recycled content, AZEK Pavers’ manufacturing to date is directly responsible for keeping more than 10 million pounds of scrap rubber and plastics out of U.S. landfills by utilizing recycled material from more than 535,000 scrap tires and 16 million plastic food containers and dvd cases. The AZEK Paver manufacturing process also uses 95 percent less energy and produces 96 percent less in carbon-dioxide emissions than the production of conventional concrete pavers.
“We are pleased that AZEK Pavers not only offers an easier way to create beautiful landscapes, but is a product with an incredibly positive environmental impact,” says Jason Grommon, president, AZEK Building Products. “A true solution for contractors and consumers, AZEK Pavers are poised to redefine the hardscape category while helping to meaningfully reduce landfill waste.”
AZEK Pavers are stain-, impact- and scratch-resistant and save on installation time and labor. Fitting into an innovative grid system and at less than half the weight of traditional pavers, they install up to three times faster with no special tools or masonry wet saws required.
