Product Disposal

American Biltrite chooses recyclable or recoverable packaging whenever possible. In most areas, materials such as cardboard, plastic, and wood can easily be recycled, recovered or reused. We recommend that you implement the same recycling initiatives and take advantage of the available facilities in your region.

When it comes time to dispose of our products as they reach the end of their life cycle, it is also possible for you to reduce the environmental footprint since they can be recycled. We invite you to search local recycling outlets. If it is impossible for you to recycle, note that our products are not usually considered as hazardous materials and can be used as landfill. However, it is important to refer to your local regulations to ensure that they comply with the requirements that apply to your area.
