Protecting the environment is becoming increasingly important with each year that goes by. Did you know that the shingles from your roof can be recycled into the roads you drive on? Each year millions of tons of shingles are added to landfills. There is a better way to dispose of these materials that most homeowners are unaware of. There are recycling centers that accept shingles in order to recycle them into asphalt for new roads.
