Why Recycle

  • Recycling gyprock waste will help the construction and demolition (C&D) companies to reduce their waste costs while being sustainable and environmentally friendly;
  • Recycling plasterboard waste will improve the environmental image of the plasterboard, cement, waste and agricultural industries;
  • As a waste operator or landfill owner REGYP can help avoid the rapidly increasing landfill levies, and  increase your resource recovery rates;
  • As a builder REGYP can help you reduce your waste costs and also increase your sustainable image;
  • REGYP provides Green recycling certificates and waste traceability for all customers and projects, helping you with you waste management plan (WMP). A WMP is a requirement for develop approval (DA) and to achieve GBCA Green Rating (esp 6 Star Green Star).
  • REGYP can get recovery rates of 100% from recycling Gyprock and plasterboard;
  • Presently more than 20,000 tonnes p.a. of plasterboard waste is landfilled in the Sydney metropolitan area alone, and the landfill sites are filling up fast;
  • Plasterboard recycling is the only solution that will preserve natural resources and help prevent shortages of raw materials;
  • Plasterboard recycling will help the gypsum industry obtain sustainable raw materials of high quality at the lowest cost;
  • Some waste industry companies say they recycle plasterboard but they are not producing a recycled gypsum product that can be substituted for natural gypsum offsetting the need for mining;

Plasterboard Recycling Process

REGYP uses proprietary equipment to recycle plasterboard waste into usable products. Some of these products offset the need to use mined minerals for industrial, civil and agricultural applications.

Making Recycled Gypsum

The following figure explains how recycled gypsum is made and how it is almost identical to the high quality gypsum that was originally used in the plasterboard manufacturing process.
