Missouri nears shingle recycling boost.
According to the resolution, the state's goal is to divert solid waste from landfills and that asphalt roofing shingle recycling provides an alternative to disposal, having been recycled and used in other states for asphalt road base, parking lots, patch repair and dust control on roads.
Because these market opportunities exist in the state, the resolution asks DNR to assist those wanting to start shingle recycling plants and to educate local governments and the citizenry on the benefits of using recycled asphalt roofing shingles, as well as to review all permit applications and facility operating needs in a "timely and expeditious manner."
Dale Behnen, whose company Peerless Landfill in Missouri is a member of the Construction Material Recycling Association, has testified on the resolution. She says it is a non-binding document, but may be a first step toward a state bill supporting these actions.
