Asphalt roofing shingles can be recycled into asphalt to build or repair roads, driveways, walkways and parking lots. Wood shingles (e.g., cedar shakes) can be recycled with the wood recycling stream and metal roofing can be recycled with the metals recycling stream. Clay tiles may be resold at a salvage yard thus reducing the materials sent to the landfill.

Due to previous mishandling of material and lack of market demand, asphalt shingles are not currently considered a "recyclable material" under state law in Colorado. Read the one page policy here.
