How to Dispose of Cedar Shingles

Since cedar shingles are often coated with a chemical substance that is designed to help the shingles last longer, most cedar shingles cannot be recycled as the chemicals could potentially contaminate groundwater. If you are looking to dispose of cedar shingles, your best option would be to rent a dumpster bin from a reputable junk removal company. Once the bin is full, the company will remove it from your property and will ensure that the shingles are disposed of safely.

How to Dispose of Tar and Gravel Roofing

Depending on the materials used for your tar and gravel roof, some of the items like the tar, nails, and staples can be separated from the other debris and recycled; however, in some cases, tar and gravel roofing materials can be considered hazardous so make sure to talk to a professional before removing the roof on your own. A reputable junk removal company will be able to carefully sort through the debris, separating out the materials that can be safely recycled from the materials that will need to be disposed of properly.
