In today’s environment of aging homes and cyclical boom of new construction asphalt shingle recycling has become a hot topic. There are many roofing contractors who have pledged with various manufacturers to recycle most, if not all, of the shingles that are torn off during re-roofing projects. Every year 11 million tons of asphalt shingle waste is generated. Did you know that 3000 square feet of roof, when recycled, can help make 50 linear feet of road? That’s far better than sitting in a landfill! There are now 30 states in the US of A that have approved recycled asphalt shingles to be used in the mix for state road repair and construction. As a Certified Green Roofer through GAF and a member of CertainTeed’s Roofing Responsibly program, Consolidated Roofing Systems has been recycling all roofing shingles that are torn off for several years.
