Why We Recycle

ECCO Recycling is proud to say that we recycle more shingle tonnage per year than any other shingle recycling facility in Canada. This means that we are making a huge difference for Calgary by diverting tens of thousands of tonnes of material from entering Calgary’s landfills every year.

As recently as 2008, all tear-off shingle generated in Calgary went straight to landfill. Since 2009, ECCO Recycling has been diverting shingles from the landfill and recycling them into usable product. Today, we recycle over 80% of Calgary's used shingles, and our goal is 100%, every last tonne!
