Drywall recycling

Gypsym Recycling International is the first company to have implemented a complete and commercially viable voluntary system for drywall recycling, which includes the recycling all kinds of gypsum board and drywall waste. Today we operate drywall recycling systems in 10 different countries. Our drywal recycling system benefits the environment, the construction and demolition industry and the manufacturers of the drywall. Take a look at our unique drywall recycling system

The benefits to the environment of drywall recycling

Drywall recycling means that waste that would otherwise have been disposed of in landfills now is being recycled and turned into a gypsum powder that the drywall manufacturers can use when making new boards. Not only does drywall recycling thereby prevent waste from being deposited unnecessary in landfills to the benefit of the environment, but the use of scarce natural resources is also limited by the drywall recycling, as the recycled waste will reduce the need for manufacturers to acquire natural gypsum resources. On top of that drywall waste in landfills under certain circumstances is known to cause hydrogen sulfite gasses, which potentially are lethal, and obviously by recycling drywall waste instead, such dangerous situations can be avoided.

The benefits to the construction and demolition industry of drywall recycling

For the construction and demolition contractors recycling drywall waste means less costs, as we always offer drywall recycling at a price below the price of disposal to landfills. As we on top of our drywall recycling service also provide an entire collection and logistic solution, the construction and demolition contractors can leave everything to us: We will pick up the waste at the construction site, recycle it and deliver the powder to the drywall manufacturers. The only thing the construction and demolition contractors have to do, is to order our drywall recycling service.

The benefits to the drywall manufacturers of drywall recycling

For the drywall manufacturers drywall recycling also means less costs, as we always offer the recycled gypsum powder made from the drywall recycling at a price that is below the price of other gypsum raw materials.

Company profile

Gypsum Recycling International is the mother company of the internationally operating Gypsum Recycling Group. Gypsum Recycling International is the first company worldwide to have implemented a complete and commercially based drywall recycling system for recycling of all kinds of drywall and gypsum waste by converting the waste into a raw material for production of new drywalls. The system was introduced in Denmark in 2001, and has since been expanded to cover new countries very quickly. Today we are active in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Holland, Belgium, USA, and Japan will start next year. Gypsum Recycling Internationals system provides benefits to all parties involved, and accordingly the basis of the system is common business sense rather than bans or regulations regarding landfilling of drywall waste.

Significantly different

The system has a proven track record in several countries and has obtained the world record recycling rate of 65%, not just of new construction waste but also of demolition waste. We do not just claim we can make drywall recycling happening, we are doing it every day in 7 countries. Nobody has more experience than us. It is a complete system with all the necessary elements for efficiently taking the waste from the place of generation to the processing facility, where the waste very economically is transformed into a valuable raw material that cost efficiently is delivered to the drywall plant nearby. The system encompasses: a collection system/containers, a logistics system, the mobile recycling unit and end-users that can benefit from the recycled material. The recycling unit is designed to be mobile and very compact. Hereby multiple small processing plants/facilities located close to where the waste is generated can be serviced using the same recycling unit. The recycling unit removes all types of contaminants from the recycled waste, no matter whether the waste is from new construction or demolition activity, assuring that any drywall manufacturer can use the produced powder and replace up to 25% of the raw materials needs with recycled gypsum powder made from drywall waste.
