New stricter Swedish rules for gypsum waste - renewed interest for solution from Gips Recycling Sweden
06-06-2012 15:45
Sweden fully implement EU Council Decision 33/2002 regarding gypsum waste

As a consequence of the full implementation of EU Council Decision 33/2002 in April 2012, there are now only two legal ways to dispose of gypsum waste in Sweden:

1. Recycling or
2. Landfilling in a special mono-cells only accepting gypsum waste and inert waste

Consequently the following applies to gypsum waste in Sweden:

• Gypsum waste must be segregated from mixed waste, if this contains organic materials
• Mixed waste containing organic materials and gypsum waste, may no longer be accepted at Swedish landfills no matter how large the amount is
• Only landfills with special mono-cells for gypsum waste may accept segregated gypsum waste for disposal
• Gypsum waste may not be used as cover materials for landfills
• Gypsum waste may not be used for construction purposes at landfills
