Recycling 100% of all gypsum waste

Aug 20 2009 Read 1142 Times

Since 1 April this year, new measures from the Environment Agency have required all gypsum waste that cannot be recycled to be placed within a separate landfill cell, segregated from biodegradable waste. Premier Waste Management is leading the way by recycling 100% of all gypsum waste it handles, 25 tonnes in the first month since the new regulations were introduced.

Gypsum waste includes plasterboard and other building materials, that are commonly used in the construction industry but equally regularly by householders and other businesses. The Environment Agency’s new regulations are in response to the waste stream emitting the toxic gas Hydrogen Sulphide when biodegrading in landfill. Since 2005 there has been a requirement attached to gypsum waste, but this was tightened up significantly last month.
 
Premier Waste Management has responded to the new regulations by implementing new systems to efficiently and safely collect all gypsum based waste for 100% recycling, diverting all from landfill. The company’s new Waste Consultancy for construction businesses has already been successfully recycling all gypsum based waste products since its introduction earlier this year.
