PROGRAM SUSPENDED-Asphalt Shingle Recycling-11/01/2022 PROGRAM SUSPENDED
Asphalt Shingles can be recycled- saving valuable landfill space and cost and natural resources as well. Recycled shingles can be used in new roads, bike and walking trails, parking lots, and other projects where asphalt is used.
What do you need to know? It is easy – you just need to follow these simple rules:
- Recyclable loads can only contain shingles, tar paper (felt), and nails. No other debris and no wood shingles. You may bring other debris with the shingles but will be required to dump those items in a separate area.
- Shingles from commercial or dwellings with over four units will need to follow a few special requirements so please contact us before bringing these shingles for participation in the program. The requirements are easy and we can take care of the simple steps with a little help from you. Please take the extra step to have these shingles recycled.
Supplier Form will need to be completed when delivering shingles for recycling. Download the form HERE.
The recycled asphalt shingles (RAS) are being used right here in Buena Vista County at the Secondary Roads Shop and the County Park at Peterson. The RAS provides benefits to the County and the projects that it used on by reducing the need for additional rock, dust control, and reduction in maintenance over time. This results in a benefit to our County and our tax payers and is a project that is good for everyone involved.
Does your home need a new roof?
Consider recycling the old one. We can recycle asphalt shingles into new roads, walking & biking paths, and parking lots. This saves valuable landfill space and natural resources.
How do I recycle my roofing materials?
When tearing off the old shingles separate the wood, metal, and other debris from the asphalt shingles, tar paper, and nails. It is that simple. When you deliver your shingles to the transfer station you will unload the garbage in a separate area than the shingles. It is that easy– and you get a discount! Questions? Please call 712-732-7171.
