Alternatives to Removal?

As I mentioned below, I have popcorn ceilings throughout my home. Below I discussed testing the material in order to possibly remove it. However, removing the popcorn ceiling would add to the landfill, as it is non-recyclable and unable to be reused.

What are some possible alternatives to removing the popcorn that will still give me a nice ceiling?
  • Install a new drywall ceiling below the original ceiling.
  • Install a beadboard ceiling.
  • Install a tin or aluminum ceiling tile system.
All of these materials could be either salvaged or bought from a job overage AND there would be no waste to dispose of.
