Plastic Waste Bag
It can sometimes be a little hard to make sense of the changing regulations around plasterboard disposal. But whether you are an individual, business or large-scale user of gypsum-based plasterboard, there are legal requirements around how it is disposed of.
Legally, all loads of waste containing identifiable gypsum-based materials, such as plasterboard, should be separated for recovery or recycling wherever possible.
Up until 2009, the Environment Agency had been taking a pragmatic view that separate disposal was not necessary where construction waste contained only small amounts (up to 10%) of sulphate.
However, it is now the case that even small amounts should not go to landfill with biodegradable wastes.
This means it is important to separate out your plasterboard before we collect your waste to transport to our waste management site.
We offer a plasterboard collection service using the SKIPSTER waste bag or you can segregate the items in other bags if required.
