Asphalt makes sense.
Asphalt is a common
building material and in Metro Vancouver. Incredibly one roof averages 1.8
tonnes of shingles and the equivalent of 2.4 barrels of oil. Convert shingles to
gas and a Prius can drive Vancouver to New York and all the way back to
Saskatoon. Moreover, it saves the environment carbon footprint of the new
production of gas of almost a quarter tonne of CO₂
emissions. Shingles though can be used for a lot more, everything from roads to
Vancouver estimates that there is 100,000 tonnes of asphalt shingles material
annually removed from roofs. Currently about twenty percent (20%) of that amount
is recycled. Asphalt Gals Recycling seeks to increase that while assisting
roofing companies to enhance their bottom line.
all asphalt shingles for recycling enables Asphalt Gals to not only improve the
bottom line for companies and ultimately customers, it improves our environment
