How to Dispose of Old Roofing Shingles

Asphalt Shingles are a common roofing material for a majority of U.S. homes. Each year, in the process of manufacturing, installing and eventually replacing shingles, approximately 11 million tons of recyclable shingles are removed from the roofs of homes and buildings and sent to the landfill.

Shingles can be diverted from the waste stream and transformed into asphalt pavement used for our streets and highways. The shingles from one average home can pave about 200 feet of a two lane highway.



Our landfills in Utah currently don’t recycle Asphalt Shingles. But there are a couple options if you would like to “Go Green”. Recycled Earth in Ogden,UT will take your shingles and recycle them with a minimal fee or you can post on a website such as where people buy, trade or give away items related to construction, and another person may be able to use your old shingles for repair.

If your roof is in need of a repair or replacement, you can rest assured that Brady Roofing will make this process as pleasant as possible for you. We effectively schedule a dumpster to arrive at each of our jobsites to promptly haul away the shingles. We also keep the yard and surrounding area clean, free of trash and debris so there is minimal clean-up for you after the job is done.
