Shingle recycling project receives grant.
Partners include the Minnesota Office of Environmental Assistance, Pollution Control Agency and Department of Transportation, the Solid Waste Management Coordinating Board, Bituminous Roadways, Inc., Johnson Farms and Dan Krivit and Associates.
"More than 11 million tons of waste shingles, mainly from tear-offs, are generated each year in the United States," says Mary Setnicar, EPA Region 5 Pollution Prevention and Programs Initiatives chief. "Recycling asphalt shingles is a growing industry that could divert millions of tons of materials from landfills while creating jobs and generating revenue."
This project is expected to accelerate post-consumer asphalt shingle recycling by using them as a supplement to hot-mix asphalt for road construction and other pavement purposes.
