Asphalt Shingle Recycling FAQs

What is asphalt shingle recycling?

It is becoming increasingly common for shingles to be recycled versus being sent to a landfill. Shingle recycling is the process of taking asphalt shingles from roof tear-offs and collecting them for reuse into another products, ensuring the material does not end up in landfill.

What are the benefits of asphalt shingle recycling?

Shingle recycling is economically viable, convenient where available, and saves valuable resources from being sent to a landfill. Recycled asphalt shingles are most commonly used in pavement, which offsets the need for new asphalt and aggregate, and additional uses are being explored. Asphalt shingle recycling can create jobs for recycling locations and reduce costs for paving. Recycling shingles also allows homeowners to make a positive environmental contribution.

In what products are recycled asphalt shingles used?

The #1 use of recycled shingles is to make roads! Ground-up shingles are typically added to the pavement and in many cases may actually improve the quality. Other uses include using the material as an input to make roofing products or road maintenance products, or to produce energy.

What about nails?

You don’t have to pull out nails — they are separated by powerful magnets on the shingle grinder
