  • (1888PressRelease) June 24, 2010 - SHAKOPEE, Minn. - Dem-Con Companies, an innovator in construction and demolition recycling and one of the top shingle recycling companies, expands its mobile shingle grinding service to recycle roofing material and construction waste into a saleable product that would otherwise end up in landfills. Dem-Con's mobile recycling service is ideal for landfills and hot-mix asphalt production facilities that segregate and prepare, but lack the resources to recycle tear off shingles.

    "Dem-Con's mobile shingle recycling service enables customers to produce and sell a valuable material used in hot mix asphalt, from materials that would have gone to landfills," said Chris Guillemette, vice president, business development, Dem-Con Companies. "The service has been very well embraced and we are steadily expanding, working consistently across the U.S."

    As a full or custom on-site service, Dem-Con's mobile shingle grinding utilizes customers' own equipment to save cost. For facilities not equipped with the machinery, Dem-Con supplies all of the equipment, providing technical and operational assistance -- from delivery of shingles from the jobsite to hot mix design. The service includes a mobile staff that can travel anywhere in the U.S. The company has invested in multiple machines that enable its staff to fit into the customer's schedule. The service is available anywhere in the U.S.

    Dem-Con Shingle Processing is a company developed to recover shingles resulting from the manufacturing process as well as tear-off shingles from homes. Tens of thousands of tons are currently buried in landfills each year and Dem-Con shingle recycling is working to recover and provide alternative uses for this material to reduce reliance on virgin asphalt. Dem-Con works with many government and other organizations to develop equipment, specifications and end-use options for this material. The company, which will recycle more than 25,000 tons of shingles in 2010, offers local and mobile shingle grinding services.
