The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality approves shingle recycling operations to ensure proper operating plans, air permits and other requirements are met. There are currently limited opportunities for shingle recycling in Michigan. For an updated list of locations, visit www.shinglerecycling.org.  Asphalt shingles can be recycled for use in road paving projects. Petroleum and aggregate can be recaptured during the recycling process, reducing the need for new materials. Recycling them also preserves space in a landfill. The Michigan Department of Transportation has specifications on use of recycled asphalt shingles in their pavements.
