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.
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.
