How can shingles be recycled?
Whole shingles or tear-offs can be collected for reuse in other products, making sure they don't end up in landfills. Nearly 11 million tons of shingles are thrown away every year. Recyclers use choppers and grinders to reclaim material for re-use. Even nails can be thrown in, as they are separated by magnets at the plant. This recycling creates jobs and reduces the cost of building new roads.
What happens to recycled asphalt shingles?
Nearly all recycled shingles are made into roads. The shingles are ground up and usually added to pavement, often improving the quality of the road. When old roads are torn up, they are often rejuvenated using Recycled Asphalt Pavement. Mobiles units can produce hundreds of tons per hour suitable for a new mix. You probably drive on recycled shingles every day!
