The rules regarding Plasterboard Disposal

Do you know the rules regarding plasterboard disposal?

In 2009 The Environment Agency changed its guidelines regarding the disposal of plasterboard, although a non-hazardous waste it can no longer be disposed of in mixed waste streams.

Every individual and business must ensure that if they have plasterboard waste, it is disposed of appropriately according to the Environment Agency positioning statement, which can be viewed here. In summary these guidelines state that it is a legal requirement for plasterboard waste to be separated from other waste types and suitably treated.
