Shingle Disposal

Due to the minimal demand for recycled shingles, and the surplus at Metro Park East and Metro Park West landfills, Metro Waste Authority will no longer accept shingles for recycling effective August 1, 2021. Staff will continue to work diligently to develop end markets, and they hope to resume the program in the future. Shingles will be accepted in the landfill for disposal at the commercial solid waste rate, which is $38/ton.

Please contact Metro Waste Authority at 515.244.0021 if you have questions.
