CLOSED WEDNESDAY FOR ALL INBOUND SHINGLE RECYCLING. Open for sales & delivery.
This is how we process roofing shingles into 3/8 minus TxDOT approved RAS. We have no trash, screen for nails and routinely test for asbestos. If quality matters give us a visit.
Our processed recycled asphalt shingle (RAS) has a recoverable asphalt binder content between 19-20% potentially yielding 400 lbs of binder per ton of shingle waste. Atascosa Recycling has a Green Roofer Program for contractors that provide clean sorted shingles. This program expedites their unloading process. Ask about it.
Asphalt shingles are a valuable product and should be recycled.
Nationwide we generate almost 11 million tons of tear-off asphalt shingle waste per year. While some of it gets recycled the vast majority will end up in the local landfill or illegally dumped. Is this the direction that we want to go? Atascosa Recycling was founded on the principles of having a positive environmental impact.
