Can Insulation Be Reused or Recycled?

If you need to insulate your home, you’ve probably been doing your research about the different types that are available, R-value and other information. Wondering if insulation can be reused?

Can You Recycle Insulation?

When installed by professionals, cellulose can be completely recovered and reused onsite, leaving hardly any excess material to go to waste. Special machines used in the blown-in process allow extra material to be vacuumed up and blown back in onsite or salvaged for future installation.

The fact that cellulose is recycled isn’t the only reason it’s one of the most environmentally friendly insulation materials.

Eco-Friendly Insulation: Cellulose

Cellulose insulation:

  • Is made of up to 80–85 percent recycled material.
  • Takes less energy to make than other insulation materials.
  • Consists of consumer paper products, which are tied to responsible forestry management and a renewable resource of planted trees.

Any insulation material will help you reduce your energy bills and the carbon footprint of your home (which has a positive impact on the environment), but if you want the most eco-friendly insulation, considering installing cellulose insulation at your home in the DC metro area.

Fiberglass Insulation

Fiberglass insulation is another material that can be reused after the initial installation and is recyclable. It can be removed easily and put back in place. Fiberglass can also be reclaimed from demolition debris and recycled into a new product.

Fiberglass insulation also contains a relatively high amount of recycled content and is very effective at helping you save money and live more comfortably.
