Why Recycle Shingles at All?

The United States alone generates more than 11 million tons of roofing related waste each year. Apart from the negative effect this huge amount of waste has to the environment, it is also a waste of valuable resources that could be put to good use.

Recycling roofing materials, in general, offers a range of economic and marketing benefits. Old asphalt shingles can be repurposed as roads or even new roofs. With asphalt shingles being the most common roofing material, the possibilities are really endless.

What Does This Mean for You?

Recycling your old roofing system is actually a pretty straightforward process and it is not as complicated as other people will tell you. We only make minor changes during our usual tear-off procedure, and the recycling fee is actually lower than the usual fee for disposals. Recycling your roofing will save you more money than complete tear-offs that end up in the landfill.
