Disposing of gypsum, commonly referred to as drywall or sheetrock, can be tricky depending on how old it is. Before you even attempt to dispose of or recycle it, you need to identify its age and whether it has ever been used.
Generally speaking, any drywall installed before 1990 may need to be tested for asbestos. Asbestos can cause lung cancer through even the slightest exposure, so it is imperative to take all safety precautions.
In fact, the entire testing process is heavily regulated by strict rules and regulations to protect homeowners, contractors, waste facility employees, and the environment.
Here at Fleetwood Waste, we work with a company called New West Gypsum Recycling to recycle all gypsum. While we accept all drywall, we require an asbestos test and drywall declaration form for all drywall installed before 1990.
