Scranton, Pa.-based AZEK Pavers, which offers a hardscape solution for backyards and driveways, has hit a milestone by diverting more than a half million scrap tires from landfills, the company announced
Made with up to 95% recycled content, AZEK Pavers' manufacturing to date is 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% less energy and produces 96% less in CO2 emissions than the production of conventional concrete pavers, the company said.
AZEK Pavers, previously VAST Pavers, was first introduced to the market in 2007. In December 2012, AZEK Building Products completed its purchase of VAST Enterprises and the national rollout of the AZEK Paver product line.
