      Recycling Your Construction WastePlasterboard is a type of material composed of an inner layer of gypsum that comes between a pair of outer layers of lining paper. It can be sourced from a number of places which include demolition sites and refurbishment projects.

      By itself, plasterboard waste is not hazardous. However, it becomes a threat when it is combined with organic waste and gains exposure to rain under a type of environment that is anaerobic. In this condition, disposing a plasterboard is subject to local regulations as opposed to landfills disposal.

      Basically, it is the gypsum that is found in the plasterboard which has affected the change in plasterboard waste management regulations. This type of material, when disposed together with biodegradable wastes, can cause the production of toxic and odorous hydrogen sulphide gas.

        I was surprised they answered my call on a public holiday, but it was easily organised, and the next day they collected the garbage, in a friendly and professional manner. Would recommend to anyone.

        Sam was excellent and clearly a very hard work. Gave an on the spot quote and then took it all away for me. I had a small mountain of green waste and he even took away a bunch of random other hard rubbish items. Well priced compared to other quotes by big businesses. I definitely recommend these guys.
