5 Tips for Responsible Domestic Plasterboard Disposal

If you’re renovating or redecorating your home, chances are you’ll end up with some plasterboard waste to dispose of. Plasterboard, also known as drywall or gypsum board, is a common building material that’s used to create walls, ceilings, and partitions. While plasterboard is a useful and versatile material, it’s not always easy to dispose of responsibly.

Many of our customers ask us how to responsibly dispose of excess plasterboard, so we thought, why not make a quick and easy guide?

Here are 5 top tips for domestic plasterboard disposal:

  1. Know the regulations: Before you start any demolition or renovation work, it’s important to check the regulations in your area regarding plasterboard disposal. In some areas, plasterboard is considered hazardous waste and must be disposed of in a specific way.
  2. Separate plasterboard from other waste: When you’re removing plasterboard from your home, make sure to separate it from other waste. Plasterboard should be placed in a separate pile or skip to ensure that it’s not contaminated with other materials.
  3. Check with your local council: Many local councils provide a recycling service for plasterboard. Check with your local council to see if they offer this service and if there are any specific requirements for how the plasterboard should be prepared for recycling. You can check with your local council by visiting here: https://www.gov.uk/find-local-council
  4. Consider donating: If your plasterboard is in good condition, consider donating it to a local charity or community organization. They may be able to use the plasterboard for their own projects, reducing waste and benefiting the community.
