So you are a diligent advocate of recycling in your home, picking out bottles and cans from the trash when absent minded guests throw them in with the rest of the trash, and you’re wondering how you can do your part when it comes to disposing of your old roofing shingles? The answer is simple, roof recycling! Much in the same way you separate your bottles and cans, Choice Roofing Group roof installers separate your shingles from the other demolition waste for quick and easy recycling.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, roofing shingles make up 10% of all job-site waste. In other words, about 11 million tons of landfill waste is made up of roofing material alone! This number is just to large to go unnoticed. Recycled roofing materials are used in asphalt to pave roads, fix those pesky pot-holes and even mixed up with gravel to eliminate dust on unpaved roads. With all these applications available for your unwanted shingles it’s hard to say no to roof recycling. Now listen to this, recycling shingles is actually cheaper than taking them to the dump! Let’s take another look at the benefits of recycling shingles:
- Used to pave roads
- Fills in those terrible pot-holes
- Eliminates dust on unpaved roads
- Helps to eliminate the 11 million tons of roofing material going into our landfills every year
- Recycling saves YOU money
