Asphalt shingles have always been a popular roofing material for homeowners and roofing contractors alike. As GAF Master Elite® roofing contractor, we’ve always been proud to invest in asphalt recycling for the benefit of the environment.
Here’s an overview of the asphalt shingle recycling movement.
Benefits of Shingle Recycling
As asphalt shingles are used on the majority of roofs in the U.S., the need for a better way to dispose of old asphalt grows every year. Thanks to recent innovations, asphalt shingles can now be recycled and reused to build roads. Most recycling processes involve placing the old shingles into a grinder, which makes the end product reusable.
Apart from being an eco-friendly initiative, recycling also saves everyone money. Contractors pay less for electricity and material costs, and road building uses up less taxpayer money thanks to the use of recycled asphalt.
Shingle Recycling Today
We’ve made significant progress in our contributions in the recycling business as even more businesses and commercial roofing companies have committed to the movement. This year, GAF has led the initiative in motivating more contractors to recycle their asphalt shingles. GAF’s Green initiative contractors will get a rebate when they recycle shingles as an added incentive.
