Shingles (Asphalt)

Alternative ways to recycle
Blue Line Transfer

Construction materials don’t belong in the garbage or recycling and are not accepted as part of the bulky item collection program. They may be self-hauled to Blue Line Transfer or collected via roll-off box (fees apply). 

Find a Shingle Recycler

Asphalt shingles are easily recycled, though they require a special facility for processing. Locate the nearest shingle recycling facility.

Do Not Remove Nails

Shingle recyclers accept material with nails in it, so do not remove the nails. The recycling operators use a powerful magnet to separate nails from the asphalt.

Alternative Ways to Recycle

Ask Your Contractor If They Recycle

Before hiring a contractor to work on your roof, see if they can recycle the asphalt shingles for you.
