BETHESDA, MD. (April 13, 2009)—The EPDM Roofing Association has created an affiliate member category, whose members will form the ERA Recycling Council.
ERA has named Nationwide Foam Inc., of Framingham, Mass., the first affiliate member.
Nationwide Foam collects and hauls used expanded polystyrene, extruded polystyrene, polyisocyanurate and composite foam board directly from tear-off roofing job sites, in addition to its collection and transportation of EPDM.
The Affiliate Member category is open companies not eligible for regular or associate membership but who are involved in any aspect of EPDM recycling or other single-ply roof membranes to enhance relationships within the industry.
Membership requires the approval of the ERA Board of Directors.
