Reducing Waste Plasterboard to Pellets

Site’s should always consider ways in which they can reduce their waste and minimise carbon footprint.

Targets should be set and monitored for minimising waste to landfill and avoiding any unnecessary journeys.

This in turn will help to protect the environment.

Below is an example of how sites have decreased the use of skips:

  • A system was adopted which turned waste plasterboard into pellets;
  • This increased the filling ratio of skips by up to 60% by removing most of the air;
  • This system also reduced the site’s carbon footprint, by decreasing the use of skips and the movement of vehicles.
