Types of Roofing Shingles and How to Dispose of Them
Roofing contractors typically have tons of waste after performing roof replacements and other jobs. Fortunately, many types of roofing shingles are made of recyclable materials. Here’s a quick breakdown of the most popular roofing materials and how to dispose of them:
– Asphalt Shingles. As the most popular shingle material, asphalt contains composites that can be used to create other materials, including new pavement, hot-mix asphalt, and cold asphalt for patching. Asphalt shingle components like petroleum and aggregate can be recaptured and reused through recycling. The average number of asphalt shingles torn off the typical home can be used to pave around 200 feet of a two-lane highway. You can bring asphalt shingles to our Dump Site and we’ll handle the rest!
– Wood Shingles. Although not used very often anymore, wood shingles can be torn off and recycled as long as they haven’t been treated with toxic materials. These shingles are usually made of spruce, pine, or cedar – all types of wood that can be recycled or otherwise reused.
– Concrete, Clay, and Slate Tiles. Tiles made out of materials like concrete, clay, and slate are also good candidates for recycling. Depending on their quality and condition, they are sometimes torn off and reused in other roofing projects.
– Composite Tiles and Shingles. Tiles and shingles made of composite materials containing rubbers, polymers, and plastics are often considered hazardous waste. As a result, they aren’t usually recycled. If they can’t be reused, they generally end up in landfills. If you are working with this type of shingle material on your job, call us to discuss disposal options.
– Metal Roofing Materials. Not surprisingly, metal roofing materials like aluminum, steel, zinc, and copper retain a lot of value and are usually recycled or reused. Let us handle this type of roofing waste at our Dump Site!
