Can shingles go in a recycling bin? In general, most types of asphalt shingles are recyclable, which is nice because they are the most common roofing material and tend to have the shortest lifespan. While you can’t just dump your shingles into your personal recycling bin, there are places that accept them across the country.
How much waste do you figure with shingles? It’s best to plan your order using the same waste factor that you would use for three-tab shingles—at worst you’ll just have a couple of bundles to return. For a simple roof, I generally figure 1 percent as a waste factor. On a complex roof with open valleys, I add 5 percent and sometimes more.
