Shingle Recyclers Try To Swindle Oklahoma Tornado Survivors

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality is warning residents about people who claim to be shingle recyclers.

The Oklahoma City area has recently experienced three killer tornadoes that left people dead in Shawnee, Moore, El Reno and damaged thousands of homes and businesses in the metro area.

The department says people are claiming to be shingle recyclers -- but that there are no permitted shingle recycling facilities in Oklahoma. The agency says shingles must be disposed of in a DEQ permitted landfill.

DEQ says anyone approached by a shingle recycler should report the contact to its 24-hour hotline at (800) 522-0206.
