If you are looking to dispose of plasterboard correctly then look for plasterboard clearance London services for convenience. Since April 2009 the European Legislation prohibits plasterboard from being put into landfills. This is applicable to both individuals and businesses.

As a building material plasterboard is convenient and completely safe, but when it comes to disposing of it, there are a few challenges that come up. Plasterboard is not hazardous waste in itself but can become so when not disposed of properly. As plasterboard is made up of gypsum it produces a poisonous gas when disposed of with biodegradable waste. Long exposure in a landfill causes it to breakdown and produce hydrogen sulphide or sewer gas or swamp gas. That is why plasterboard disposal has to be done separately, to stop it from putrefying.
