An on-site dumpster is a definite time-saver when you have to rip off old shingles and install a new roof. But, you have several other ways to make your re-roofing job more efficient and problem-free. Whether you’re a roofing contractor or you plan to replace your own roof, follow these five tips for easy and safe roofing waste removal.
- Have a Plan for Roofing Waste
In some parts of Illinois, you can dispose of used shingles yourself by dumping the waste materials at a landfill. However, if a landfill is located close
to a shingle-recycling facility, the landfill may not be able to accept old shingles.
Check the local laws and ordinances regarding roofing-material disposal before you order any roofing-related dumpsters. In some cases, if your shingles have asbestos, you must hire a licensed roofing contractor to remove and dispose of used roofing materials.
