Zero-waste plasterboard disposal
Whilst plasterboard is a fairly common material in construction, it cannot be disposed of in landfill. Plasterboard cannot decompose, but instead releases the pungent (rotten eggs smelling), flammable and highly toxic gas hydrogen sulphide when disposed of alongside biodegradable waste.
As licensed waste carriers, we collect plasterboard waste at our Lower Compton facility and send it to specialist re-processors so that 100% of old plasterboard can be safely recycled into new materials
