I take ours to a quarry and they crush it to use in paving roads. You may want to check with the quarries in your area. Last time I had 6 ton and it only cost $45 so cost wise it works well.

A couple of things come to mind. I know that some people like to have small pieces to paint on for cutesey are projects. Addresses and welcome signs.

On the other hand, slate is rock and it doesn't hurt anything if you put it back in the ground where it came from. No ill effects, and no polution.

*Note to all slate roofers slate is green material and dosn't need to go in land fills, we found a a company by this job in NY Long Island that takes old slate roofs and crushes them to make in to road aggregates. One more reason to go with a traditional slate roof or a natural materials. See post slate and concrete

Hello.

I'm doing my roof slate for the 1st. time and was wondering if the stuff can be recycled somehow. The slate is spent. I know that you can recycle concrete and was wondering if there is some place I might be able to bring this instead of a dump.

Thanks.
