The state of Massachusetts bans landfilling of gypsum waste
22-12-2010 08:42
Widespread support for the ban from industry

The ban has been discussed for several months and is widely supported across industries. The waste and recycling industry supports the ban due to the problems the industry has experienced with generation of hydrogen sulfite gasses at the local landfills. The construction industry supports the ban as the ban will improve the industry’s recycling rate, lower cost of disposal and move the construction industry towards a lower carbon footprint. The plasterboard/wallboard industry already for the majority use recycled paper for the lining of the gypsum wallboards and look forward to receiving recycled gypsum as a raw material for the production of new wallboards.

The ban on landfilling of new gypsum waste follows other bans on waste disposal in landfills issued by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) in recent years. The revised regulations are available on MassDEP’s web site:
