We do not accept plasterboard or gypsum at any of the Recycling Centres.

If you have carried out the plasterboard or gypsum removal yourself from your own home, then you can take it to one of the facilities below, via the weighbridge entrance where council and high-sided vehicles go.

If you have hired a tradesperson or builder to remove the plasterboard or gypsum for you, it can’t be disposed of at any of our facilities because this is classed as business waste. The tradesperson or builder should dispose of it for you. Always ask a tradesperson to include waste disposal in their quote.

Important information before you visit

Personal protective equipment

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

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.

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.
