Here at Sylvagen, we are always in search of the most effective way to relieve our customers of any materials that have the potential to be recycled — including plasterboard. Manufactured from gypsum powder and widely used in the fabrication of schools, offices, factories, and homes, plasterboard has many advantages as a cost-effective construction material. When incorrectly disposed of, however, it can create unnecessary toxic by-products.

We make the disposal of this common building material safe, simple, and financially viable for all by collecting it in bulk and transporting it to licensed facilities for recycling. From standard wall board to non-medical plaster casts, we are equipped to collect plasterboard in any of the categories listed below. Speak to one of our recycling specialists today at 01892 280 290, or complete the request form below to receive a competitive quote.
