I recently took a pickup truck load of roofing materials to this facility for recycling after one of the local shingle recyclers refused them because the roll roofing most likely contained asbestos fibers (the old asphault shingles may have as well. I was told by the person in the office that their equipment can detect and separate the asbestos from the recyclable materials and that what COULD be recycled WOULD be recycled.
After seeing the enormous pile of debris (20 to 30 feet high), I find it very hard to believe that individual shingles and roofing materials can be separated in an economical fashion.
Can anyone comment on this? Very curious...

Be VERY worried about what is in that pile and the "dust" that the workers breathe in every day. That's all I can say!
