Reduce, Recycle, Reuse

Recycle your old roof and help pave the way to a better world. Besides that you can also help decrease future landfill waste – by the ton.

According to the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA),  up to 10 million tons of recyclable shingles is removed from the roofs of U.S. structures for both homes and business per year.

Only 950,000 tons of recycled asphalt roofing shingles were used in new asphalt pavement mixes in the United States during in 2017 according to National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA).

Select Affordable Roofing by John Cadwell, Inc. for your next roof replacement and recycle your torn-off shingles (see list of areas services). Hence, your old shingles can become repurposed into new road pavement.

Asphalt shingles are a recyclable material.
