At Alpha Roofing Wilmington, NC we have made the pledge. Yes, we want to reduce the number of shingles in the landfills in North Carolina.
With landfills becoming overrun with waste, more emphasis has to be placed on recycling everything we can for the sake of the environment. Here at Alpha Roofing Wilmington, NC, we place high priority on doing our part to recycle asphalt shingles. We are committed to doing what is best for our customers and the world around us.
Recycling shingles is of high importance for the sake of the health of the environment and reusing resources. By recycling shingles, we keep excessive trash out of the landfills. Also, the shingles can be ground down and used for resources in other industries. These scraps can be used for pavement, ramps, bridges, sidewalks, and driveways to name a few. With these great uses, we can’t afford not to recycle shingles. Alpha Roofing Wilmington, NC looks for every opportunity to serve the community that they can.
The process in which shingles are recycled start with the grinding of the shingles. Once the grinding process has taken place, the shingles are sifted through to remove all contaminants before they can be used for new building materials. Depending on the use of the recycled shingles, the products may need to be sifted through a second time to further remove items that will interfere with processing. After materials are ground and fully picked through, they can be sent to the manufacturers that use them for various building materials.
The benefits of recycling shingles has great impacts on all those involved. Landfills aren’t packed full of this waste, companies are able to reuse the materials for other projects, and it costs less to recycle than to create new material. Alpha Roofing Wilmington, NC believes in serving their customers the best they can along with giving back to the community.
