New Recycling Facility in Nashville

Nashville Tenn. gets asphalt recycling center, turning roofs into roadways. This is the first asphalt recycling facility to open in Nashville, as an ongoing alliance between Heritage Environmental Services and Owens Corning Roofing and Asphalt. Contractors can drop off old shingles which in turn get ground up and used in paving material for local roads.

Local contractors are pledging to recycle 100% of the roofing job waste. The average home yields 3 tons of shingle waste. Estimated at over 10 million tons of tear-off-shingles that go into landfills each year. The high content of asphalt is reason the shingles can be used to pave roads.

President of Owens Corning roofing and asphalt LLC, Sheree Bargabos stated “This program makes recycling easy and provides our contractor network with an opportunity to clearly differentiate themselves by providing a complete roofing system including a sustainable end-of-life recycling option for old shingles.”

Rodney pierce, director of sustainable solutions at Heritage Environmental Services said “Our shingle recycling programs are designed to provide roofing contractors with a beneficial and cost effective alternative to disposing of tear-off shingles in landfills.”
