In addition to plaster/gypsum boards, you may also hand in gypsum blocks and gypsum powder (in bags) at the waste recycling point. It is important that the gypsum is handed in separately from other materials. For example, there should be no metal or wooden framework on the gypsum. The gypsum must also be free of tiling.
What happens to the waste?
Gypsum waste is perfectly recyclable, provided you offer it as a separate flow at the waste recycling point. The gypsum is turned into clean gypsum powder, which is used as a raw material for new gypsum boards and gypsum blocks.
