At Sumner Roofing & Exteriors we recycle materials we remove from your home. We are currently able to recycle shingles, aluminum, copper, and steel, saving energy and valuable resources.
According to the Northeast Recycling Council approximately 11 million tons of shingle waste is generated in the U.S. each year. For each ton of recycled shingles, it has been estimated a savings of 1 barrel of oil.
By recycling building materials we keep tons of reusable materials out of the Tennessee landfills and reduce the impact of producing new materials. Old shingles are being turned into material for roads, while metals are reused in a wide variety of ways.
