Roofing Tear-Off and Recycling Services
When a roof needs to be replaced, the old materials need to be removed and disposed of. We work with roofing contractors, general contractors, and roofing companies to ensure that the demolition team has a dumpster available to load with the waste materials as they’re working on the roof. We offer our roofing dumpsters to homeowners and contractors and can accept any type of roofing including asphalt shingles, tar and gravel, cedar shakes, and membrane. If you have any roofing waste to get rid of, give us a call today for help, from Vancouver to Kelowna we are here to serve you.
Roofing Waste Solutions
We offer solutions for homeowners and companies looking to demolish an existing roof and accept cedar shakes, torch-on membrane roof materials, and asphalt shingles. We recycle as much of the roofing material as possible and then dispose of the rest for our clients. We do strive to make the demolition process as easy as possible for the crew working on the roof by providing the right size bin and ensuring it’s in the appropriate location for all waste to be easily disposed of. If you need to get rid of the current roof, we make the whole process as easy as possible.
Roof Disposal, Tear-Off, and Recycling
We offer numerous sizes of dumpsters for any project. Smaller dumpsters are perfect for small homes or in areas where a larger dumpster cannot be placed close to the home. We also offer larger dumpsters that are better for bigger homes and commercial buildings where there is room for them to be placed. We do recommend thinking about where the dumpster will be located, as this can impact the size, as well as how much waste will be created by taking off the old roof. Our specialists can help you determine the right size dumpster for any project.
Removing Cedar Shingles
Cedar shingles are often coated with a chemical to help the shingles last as long as possible before they need to be replaced. Unfortunately, this means they likely cannot be recycled. However, they do still need to be disposed of properly to ensure the chemicals don’t leech into the ground and cause contamination with the groundwater. We can provide a dumpster to load all of the cedar shingles as they’re removed from the roof. Once they’re all collected, we can dispose of them properly, according to all local regulations.
Asphalt Roofing Recycling
Asphalt roofing is one of the only types of roofing that can be recycled. If you’re removing asphalt shingles, load them into one of our dumpsters and we can take them to be recycled for you. The recycling process for these shingles consists of melting them down and using the shingles to create new asphalt that is used to pave roads. This is an excellent way to help the environment while replacing the roof and it helps to ensure the shingles aren’t going to just sit in a landfill, as they’ll take many years to start to break down.
Tar and Gravel Roofing Disposal
When a tar and gravel roof needs to be replaced, it is important to do so carefully. Some of the materials used for this roof will be considered hazardous, so it’s important to follow all local regulations when getting rid of it. Depending on the roof, the tar may be able to be separated and recycled, as can the nails or staples used to install the roof. When you separate them and put the materials in one of our dumpsters, we will recycle any parts that are accepted by the local recycling center. We can then dispose of the rest of the materials in line with local regulations for the hazardous materials to ensure they are handled properly.
Working with a Roofing Waste Disposal Company
When you’re ready to remove an old roof and replace it, you’ll need to work with a roofing waste disposal company to get rid of all of the removed materials properly. Below are the steps needed to ensure the job is as easy as possible for you or the contractors working on the roof.
- Call the Roofing Waste Disposal Company – First is the call to the roofing waste disposal company. When you call us, our specialists can discuss your project to determine the perfect size dumpster. This way, you don’t have to worry about renting one that’s going to be too large and a waste of money or one that’s too small and will need to be removed and emptied frequently, slowing down the project.
- Dumpster Arrives On-Site – On the desired date, we will drop off the dumpster at your site. This includes placing it in the desired location so it’s easy to drop materials into the dumpster from the roof, where possible. We ensure this is done carefully, so there’s no risk of damage to the property from our dumpsters being placed or picked up.
- Fill the Dumpster with Roofing Materials – Once the dumpster is placed, the project can begin. Depending on the roof, it may be necessary to separate nails or other materials that are recyclable. Otherwise, everything can simply be tossed into the dumpster as it is removed from the roof. This way, all of the material is easily contained, saving a significant amount of time.
- Call for the Dumpster to be Picked Up – When the job is done, we pick up the dumpster again. All you have to do is let us know that you’re ready for it to be picked up. At that point, we’ll collect the dumpster, then recycle as many materials as possible and properly dispose of anything that is remaining. We handle all of the disposal process for you.
