Because shingle recycling is a fairly new process we understand that you may have some questions. We have provided information below about shingle recycling - if you have additional questions please feel free to contact us!
Shingles take up a lot of room in our landfills and reusing them helps reduce the use of oil in asphalt - making it more affordable for paving projects.
What Are Recycled Shingles Used For?
Your shingles will be cleaned, ground and mixed with other materials to create asphalt for private roads and parking lots.
Is All Roofing Material Recylable?
No. Only waste stream 4 unit or less residential shingles and other manufactured scrap is currently recyclable. Roll roofing, tile, cedar shake, tar, rubber, slate and built-up roofing can not be recycled.
If I Want to Recycle My Roof, Can I Just Call You?
Yes. We would be happy to help you with this. Just give us a call and we can make arrangements for you to drop off your roof.
Will You Provide Me With A Dumpster?
While Great Lakes Shingle Recycling does not own dumpsters we do work with contractors in all covered areas for rentals. Just contact us and we will get you in touch with a vendor we support.
What Is A Clean Load?
We can not accept anything more than the shingles and debris from your roofing project. Debris does include rotting roof boards, flashing, drip edges, pallets and plastic from the shingle packaging.
Do You Recycle Anything Other Than Shingles?
Great Lakes Shingle Recycling does not recycle anything other than shingles and roof debris. We do have a yard waste/organic waste company that we work with. For more information on Spurt Industries, please visit their website at spurtindustries.com.
