An estimated 11 million tons (22 billion lbs) of asphalt shingle waste is produced annually in the U.S, due to tear-off and re-roofing.
Every ton of shingles that is recycled saves the equivalent of 1 barrel of oil from going to the landfill.
The average asphalt shingle re-roofing results in 1-3 tons of old product that is commonly disposed of in a landfill.
The price to dispose of shingles in a landfill, depending on state, is roughly $35-50 per ton. In some states, in the Northeast, the rate is as high as $110 per ton.
Asphalt recycling plants charge as little as $18 per ton.
Since shingles are made from refined petroleum they should not be burned because of harmful emissions.
In some states, asphalt shingles are used in “Roof-to-Road” Programs, where recycled shingles are used to make street and highway pavement. Recycled shingles are also used for paving private roads, parking lots, or for patch work.
