Plasterboard

Charges have been introduced for certain non-household waste items, including gypsum based products. The most common gypsum-based materials are plaster and plasterboard. 

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.

Where accepts plasterboard?

In Staffordshire, householders can dispose of gypsum waste at our Household Waste Recycling Centres in:

How much does it cost?

£4.80 per bag* or 180cm x 90cm sheet.

* 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?

All plasterboard or plaster must be separated and clean, before coming on to a site. If it is attached to wallpaper or tiles, or contains any wire meshing, the load will not be accepted.
