Carefully consider how much you need by calculating what is required.
Plasterboard should not be placed in any of your kerbside bins. Plasterboard is made up of gypsum and when this is disposed of with biodegradable waste it can produce a poisonous gas. It is a legal requirement that plasterboard is disposed of separately. It must be dry and any tiles, wood etc should be removed.

It is not a statutory duty for the sites to take waste that isn’t produced in the normal day-to-day occupation of a home. Waste from DIY or garden work is not legally regarded as normal household rubbish and a charge or disposal limit can be made.
How much does it cost?
There is a charge of £4.80 per bag* or 180cm x 90cm sheet for plasterboard recycling.
*Charges are based on standard rubble bags which are approximately 76cm x 96 cm. They are available from DIY stores or you can buy them from the recycling centre for 10p. Waste can be presented loose or in different sized bags and charges will be estimated by staff.
How do I pay?
Either by credit or debit card on arrival.
Please note: no cash or cheques will be accepted.
What do I need to do?
