Plasterboard Waste Reduction

The Green Grinder Mini is a small but powerful, custom plasterboard grinding unit that can actually be wheeled through door openings and residential hallways.

The main purpose of the Mini is to address plasterboard site waste immediately, keep the gypsum clean and dry, and maximise the transport of removing the waste board. The Mini is also equipped with a full dust suppression unit.

Structure is using this technology on all sites, recognising the follow benefits:

  • It’s compact and takes up very little space;
  • The grinding operation can be carried out inside the building hence keeping the waste material dry;
  • It reduces the volume of plasterboard waste hence less skips and substantially reducing on-site lorry traffic;
  • The system reduces risk, noise and pollution, which contributes positively towards environmental and health and safety targets as well as community relations;
  • All waste material is 100% recyclable.

The technology itself also has its own perks:

  • The grinder is electrically powered therefore no harmful emissions;
  • The grinder has integral dust extraction.

Suitable off-cuts are not to be discarded for crushing and should be stored for inspection by structure site management to address if they are suitable for uses such as window and door reveals.

Structure have found using this technology very helpful in managing waste streams, it is very easy to implement  and the benefits are realised immediately.
