Will You Handle the Disposal of the Old Roofing Materials?

As a responsible and customer-centric roofing company, WABO Roofing takes care of the entire roofing process, including the disposal of old roofing materials. Proper discarding of old roofing materials is essential for environmental sustainability and maintaining a clean and safe work environment. In this article, we will delve into the importance of proper roofing material disposal, the potential risks associated with improper disposal, and how WABO Roofing ensures the safe and eco-friendly removal of old roofing materials.

Ways to Dispose the Old Roofing Materials

Shingles can be recycled, donated, or just discarded. We can help you dispose of the shingles, but if you are looking for other options, then a few details are mentioned below:

Recycle Shingles

Recycling old roofing materials offers several benefits beyond environmental conservation. It contributes to the circular economy, and thus reducing the demand for virgin materials and lowering the whole carbon footprint of the roofing industry. Additionally, recycling roofing materials can lead to cost savings, making it a financially viable and sustainable option for both homeowners and roofing companies.

Apart from environmental considerations, proper disposal of old roofing materials is crucial for maintaining a safe and clean work environment during the roofing project. Accumulation of debris and waste can create hazardous conditions for the roofing crew and other workers on the site. At WABO Roofing, safety is our top priority, and our team is trained to adhere to strict safety protocols throughout the disposal process.

Indeed, ordinary asphalt shingles contain valuable composites, resins, and substances that make them highly recyclable. When recycled, these shingles can be melted down and repurposed in road pavement and hot-mix asphalt for cement production. Embracing asphalt shingle recycling reduces the demand for new raw materials like oil and fosters a sustainable approach to resource usage.

Asphalt shingle recycling centres are now widely accessible across the United States. Nevertheless, their specific rules and policies may vary. Some centres require pre-cleaning or pre-grinding of the shingles before recycling, while others handle nail removal through powerful magnets. Additionally, the recycling centre’s fee structures also differ, with some charging for shingle disposal, others offering free services, and a few even compensating for the recycled materials.

Donate Them

Donate Them

In addition to recycling, old shingles have the potential for reuse. In cases where the shingles being removed are still in decent condition, they can find new life when you seek a change of colour or style or opt for an early replacement to enhance the value of your property before listing it for sale.

Certain organizations or groups are interested in purchasing or accepting free donations of old and usable shingles. These groups then utilize the shingles in charitable initiatives such as roofing low-income homes and provide a valuable and sustainable solution that benefits both the environment and the community.

Discard the Shingles

If your shingles are not suitable for donation or don’t meet the requirements of local asphalt shingle recycling centres then disposing them is the only option. We will utilize a dumpster to gather the waste during the tear-off process and ensure a seamless and efficient project. The labour costs of the project will encompass the removal of old shingles, and the dumpster company will charge an associated fee.

For shingles that may contain asbestos due to their age, special disposal measures are required to adhere to safety regulations and protect the environment. Proper handling and disposal of such materials necessitate the expertise of certified asbestos abatement professionals.
