Recycle Your Shingles to Pave Roadways

As concern for our environment grows, the recycling of asphalt shingles is becoming more important.
Asphalt shingles removed from homes can be recycled by grinding and using in asphalt pavement, rather than piling up in a landfill.  As America's number one recycler, the asphalt industry reuses and recycles nearly 100 million tons of its own product every year!  Reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) actually reduces the amount of virgin asphalt cement needed for constructing new roadways. When choosing a roofing company at the Lake of the Ozarks that recycles shingles, you are helping the environment!

Shingle Recycling FAQs


1. What are the benefits of shingle recycling? 
  • Saves valuable resources from being sent to a landfill
  • Offsets need for newly mined asphalt and aggregate
  • Creates jobs for recycling locations
  • Reduces the cost for paving
  • Homeowners feel good knowing their shingles aren't ending up in a landfill

2. What are recycled asphalt shingles used for? 

The number one use of recycled shingles is to pave roads!  Ground up shingles are typically added up to 5% to pavement.  In many cases this process actually improves the quality of the pavement.  Other uses include input to make roofing products, cement kiln fuel and road maintenance products. 

3. Do you have to pull out the nails to recycle the shingles? 

You don't have to remove the nails.  They are actually separated by powerful magnets on the shingle grinder.  Once separated, the nails are actually recycled too!
