Where are recycled shingles used?

Asphalt being the main ingredient in shingles, it can be extracted to be used in road construction, maintenance and repair. It is also possible to create new shingles from the old ones. To give you an idea, the shingles from one average-sized home can be used to surface about 200 feet of a two-lane highway. In recent times asphalt has also been used as a source for alternative energy generation.
