Virginia

Virginia TRC recently released their research report “Investigation of the Use of Tear-Off Shingles in Asphalt Concrete” in May, 2010. Click here to download.
Virginia's Department of Transportation (VDOT) is currently researching the use of waste shingles in hot-mix asphalt applications.  The VDOT has a Special Provision that allows the use of recycled asphalt shingles (RAS) under specified conditions.  In 2006, a contractor from North Carolina submitted a request to the VDOT to use manufactureres' shingle scrap in a hot-mix asphalt (HMA) application.  In the summer of 2006, the VDOT used a 9.5 mm nominal size surface mix overlay containing 5% manufacturers recycled asphalt shingles (RAS) on approximately a 2 mile section of pavement.  A two mile "control" section using the same mix with 10% recycled asphalt pavement (RAP) and no shingles was also applied at the same location.  Laboratory and field results will be available in March 2008, under Project #81452, "Use of Waste Shingles in Hot Mix Asphalt ".  For more information contact G.W. 'Bill' Maupin, Jr., Principal Research Scientist, at Bill.Maupin@VDOT.Virginia.gov or at 434.293.1948.

Currently, Virginia does not have a permitted facility to recycle asphalt shingles or a source of manufacturing waste shingles.  The recycling (grinding, etc) of shingles in Virginia would require a solid waste permit-by-rule for a materials recovery facility.  If a facility permit was developed for processing shingles, screening procedures for the shingles would be placed in the permit in order to screen out asbestos and other unwanted waste materials.  There are no specific requirements in Virginia regulation on sampling frequency. Contact the state for more information.
