Tips for ripping old shingles while minimizing cleanup

Hey guys any tips or things you do to minimize cleanup would be great to hear.

I usually try to get my dumptrailer close to roof and nail a sheet of plywood to make a sort of chute into the dump trailer. With tarps on the ground.

I’ve seen some roofers just tarp the ground and throw it all on ground. Have a young labourer to clean it all up.

What method do you use and how come?
