Zero-waste plasterboard disposal

Did you know that plasterboard is 100% recyclable? We collect plasterboard waste at our Lower Compton facility and send it to specialist re-processors so that 100% of old plasterboard can be recycled into new materials. Interestingly, plasterboard is banned from landfill so disposal of this material can be problematic. When gypsum is disposed alongside biodegradable waste, it can lead to the production of the pungent (rotten eggs), flammable and highly toxic hydrogen sulphide gas.
