I don't know how similar the material is between roof shingles and the road materials but I am starting to see road construction companies that recycle the road asphalt that they collect while milling and repaving. Perhaps your roof shingles can go into the hopper with everything else.

We have a dump just for shingles in dallas. Its awesome. If you can manage to separate the trash plastic and wood from the shingles, its where u wanna go. I think its a flat fee, 80 $, and you tip the guy a little if u need a pull off. You don't even have to get out of the truck. It doesn't smell like chit and its very very clean.

We now have our recycling facility operating in Indianapolis. The future is very bright in this industry. As soon as states start mandating that asphalt contain recycles for road projects......the price for recycled asphalt will go up as demand grows. BTW....We will do grinding for $17 a ton, 10,000 ton minimum, nationwide.

This is a video done of the machine running in Detroit. Notice all the nails at 1:20 mark. I was amazed at how many nails come out of roofing.

Though it differs from state to state the actual amount of shingles allowed in HMA is around 5% without dropping to a 58-28 liquid, then again depending on the state might be as high as 15% with that said it is definitely an environmentally friendly and cost-effective alternative to virgin material, but I would not consider at this point a hot mix manufacture actually paying for the waste product.
