Horch Roofing plans cleanup of Route 90 in Warren
Warren, Maine- Horch Roofing employees will spend Sunday, September 10, cleaning trash from Route 90 to help beautify their community. Horch Roofing’s employees will pick up debris and load it into Horch Roofing pickups and dump trucks, starting from either side of the Horch Roofing offices. The day will culminate in an employee cookout.
Horch Roofing owner Peter Horch says he was inspired to clean up Route 90 while training for a 5K race. He noticed a large amount of trash and debris on the sides of the road and wanted to do something about it.
“At Horch Roofing, we care about the environment and it bothered me to run and drive by trash on either side of our office every day,” he said. “I wanted to be able to give back to the community and beautify our local area in the process.”
Preventing waste is an important part of the Horch Roofing company culture. In 2010, the company started its “Reroof and Recycle” campaign to prevent thousands of tons of roofing waste from ending up in landfills. The waste Horch recovers becomes a recycled aggregate used to build roads and parking lots. To date, Horch Roofing has recycled 6,540,254 pounds of roofing waste.
Founded in 2003, Horch Roofing is Midcoast Maine’s largest and most experienced roofing contractor. Learn more about Horch Roofing at www.HorchRoofing.com. Learn more about the Reroof and Recycle campaign.
