How do most of you dispose of your shingles after a tear off?


Do you rent a dumpster?

Did my house & another house at the same time - dumpster
- some went to the dump with a permit

This house - only 1/2 roof ripped off - dump permit

Throw it in the neighbours yard

Seriously though, if he's worried about marring the pavers (which I don't blame him) I always put down slats of plywood underneath the 'legs' of the dumpster. Most disposal companies are aware of possible damage and they are careful for the most part

they killed my driveway on the way out. then again i did a tear off of 2 layers and threw in a bunch of other crap. 8.1tons total @91 bucks a ton. i had that 30yd dumpster stacked. still, there is no way i could have lived without it. when you're scraping that old shingle tossing it off the top of the house, it's really nice to just toss it in the trash.

we have Take A Dumper here. Its not as big as a 30-yard and is on tires so the possibility for damage is a little lower.

maybe something like that nearby? I've also seen roof crews just toss it into a trailer with plywood sides. No clue what happens to it after that though. probably off to the dump.

I’ve never even heard of a dump permit.

Guess we're lucky.

curious to see how the boxters work out for you. The crews I work with have a hard time hitting a big dumpster when we tear off. cant imagine aimong for a box!

What do they use to pick them up? Curious to see if it causes any yard damage. I think the boxes and whatever they use would have some weight to them.

But I am all for recycling and hope it works out....good luck keep us posted!

The ones they advertise here (I've yet to actually see one in action) are re-enforced plastic. They fold up when empty. You unfold it and fill it and they use a materials boom (looks like a modified sheet rock delivery truck) to retrieve it. They deliver them with a pickup. They're pretty pricey, but I can see the advantage for certain situations.

A roll off was going to cost me ay least $300 and I couldnt have moved it while I worked. But the landfill would let me dump a full size pickup truck for $11. Easy choice. I had access pretty much everywhere so I just moved the truck to under where I was ripping (2 layers). I built extension walls up as high as the cab. I think I ended up taking 4 trips.

I used a roll-off dumpster a few years ago, cost got my attention, roof was 11 sq., 2 layers, paid $400 up front, then they sent me another bill for $175 after they went over the scale. I was careful not to throw extra in there. At our land fill, the city charges $84 a ton for debris, and you need to show you are a city resident.
