Can Asphalt Shingles Be Recycled?

Asphalt shingles can absolutely be recycled, but only around 9% of asphalt shingles end up getting recycled into other things, such as the necessary ingredients for asphalt roads. This low percentage seems to be connected to the cost of the recycling process and a lack of asphalt-recycling facilities. It’s also much easier to simply discard used up shingles into dumps and landfills. When asphalt is dumped into a landfill, it will sit there for many, many years because it isn’t biodegradable. 

Recycling is more common today than it was years ago. However, some things aren’t being recycled as quickly or efficiently as could be hoped. This is because the process of recycling is very involved and takes a lot of time and money. This is true of basically any recyclable items, including metals, glass, hard and soft plastics, even asphalt shingles. 

However, because asphalt is on the list of recyclable items that aren’t being recycled at a high rate, choosing to recycle them might not be the best idea.

So what’s the solution? While we wait for the asphalt-recycling system to get set up to a point that allows them to start recycling more of the world’s used asphalt, those of us who own homes or various properties can extend the lives of asphalt roofs and keep their shingles out of landfills for as long as possible with Roof Maxx.
