Yes, our yard is open Mon-Fri 6am-4:30pm, Sat 7am – 12 pm. No appointment is necessary.
Is there a cost to recycle shingles?
Yes there is. Costs can be added based on the amount of debris mixed into the shingles. Please see our attached price list for current pricing.
If I need a dumpster rental, how much notice do I need to give you?
We recommend 24-48 hours’ notice. Early morning hours book up usually by the previous day.
What do you mean by a 'clean' load?
We are not a landfill and are limited by the State as to the amount of Shingle and Concrete debris that we can accept. A 'clean' load is defined as only shingles, Nails and some felt or tar paper. This does NOT include rotted boards from the roof. Any flashing and drip edges should be placed on top of the pile for recycling.
What happens if my load contains asbestos?
National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants, NESHAP, has determined that less than 2% of 4 unit or less residential shingles will contain asbestos at any level and less than 1% of those will have asbestos greater than 1%. It is very unlikely that your shingles would be contaminated to the level that they would not be recyclable. If this did occur, we are required to dispose of them to a licensed landfill. We reserve the right to charge these costs back to the originating source.
What payment options are available?
We accept cash, check or charge.
Do your facilities recycle anything other than shingles and Concrete?
At this time our focus is on recycling Shingles, Concrete, Slate, Marble and Block.
Why should I recycle shingles and concrete?
Recycling shingles and concrete limits the growth of our communities landfills, reduces our dependence on foreign oil, reuses previously mined aggregate, is less expensive than traditional disposal, makes better parking lots and private roads that cost less to build, and creates jobs for Pennsylvania. A 2,000 square foot home with 2 layers of roofing will recapture the equivalent of 10 barrels of oil alone!
What can I do to help prevent shingles from being landfilled?
Ask your dumpster service or roofer to recycle your shingles. Don't hesitate to ask for confirmation. Our receipt confirms that this roofing material was recycled. If you are searching out a pavement company for a new driveway or parking lot, ask for recycled shingles as part of the composition of your pavement mix. Write a letter or call your legislator asking them to encourage Pennsylvania Department of Transportation to write a spec for a mix design using recycled asphalt TEAR OFF shingles for Pennsylvania roadways.
