Plasterboard

If you have hired someone to remove the plasterboard or gypsum

The tradesperson or builder should dispose of it for you. Always ask a tradesperson to include waste disposal in their quote. If you are disposing of the plasterboard or gypsum yourself, you will be charged as this is classed as business waste.

If you have removed plasterboard or gypsum from your own home

Take it to one of the sites below by using the entrance where council and high-sided vehicles go.

Important information before you visit

Proof of address

You will need to take your most recent council tax bill or utility bill (gas, electric or landline telephone) relating to the property where the plasterboard is from. Please note mobile telephone bills are not accepted.

Using a hire vehicle

If you are using a hire vehicle, please ensure you have you hire vehicle documents with you as you may be asked to produce them.

Personal protective equipment

Personal protective equipment must be worn. This is because these sites are mainly used by council vehicles. Please wear sensible footwear.

On arrival, please stay in your vehicle and speak with a member of staff who will provide the appropriate personal protective equipment for you to wear.
