Asphalt shingles are becoming more and more eco-friendly. With fewer asphalt shingles going to landfills after roof tear-offs and more being recycled, it’s just another reason why asphalt shingles are gaining in popularity.
The process of asphalt shingle recycling has come a long way, with advancements in technology it’s becoming economically viable and saves valuable resources when being recycled rather than being dumped at a landfill. The process of asphalt shingles not only offsets the need for new asphalt and aggregate, reducing paving costs but it has also created hundreds of new jobs at recycling plants across the country. Homeowners who decide to recycle their asphalt shingles are making a positive environmental contribution.
