Our contribution

As gypsum is 100% and infinitely recyclable and we offer recycling services in over 14 countries worldwide, our customers are able to recycle all of the gypsum-based waste from the jobsite (construction and demolition). Certificates are provided to indicate the amount of waste diverted from landfill and sent to recycling units.

The likelihood of plasterboard being recycled is high, since it is designed for easy demounting from the building structure and is simple to transport.

By customizing the size of plasterboards and metal profiles for our customers, we are able to reduce waste at the jobsite.
