Plasterboard manufacturer Lafarge Plasterboard has re-launched its recycling service as GTEC Wasteline Direct.
GTEC Wasteline Direct is a nationally available recycling service for construction industry plasterboard waste. The waste material is safely removed and, where logistically feasible, the gypsum recycled back into new plasterboard. No waste recovered through the scheme is sent to land-fill.
The new service costs up to 40% less than the previous service and also supports Site Waste Management Plans and helps customers gain maximum BREEAM and Code credits in commercial and housing projects by providing electronic reports detailing the amount of waste collected and recycled.
Steve Hemmings, sustainability manager at Lafarge Plasterboard says: “Reducing waste efficiently is key for us as well as our customers. GTEC Wasteline Direct is an accessible waste management service which demonstrates our commitment to sustainable construction and continuous improvement.
“Lafarge recognises that no two construction sites are the same. Our waste plasterboard specialists can offer customers a solution best suited to their site requirement. Improved response times also mean a more flexible removal service for our customers.”
The service also contributes to the achievement of the Ashdown Agreement, the industry’s pledge to achieve a reduction in plasterboard waste being sent to landfill.
