Lafarge Plasterboard launches GTEC Wasteline Direct recycling service

Lafarge Plasterboard has re-launched its recycling service as GTEC Wasteline Direct to better help its customers meet increasingly exacting environmental regulations.

GTEC Wasteline Direct is a nationally available recycling service that enables the construction industry to recycle its plasterboard waste through its closed loop recycling system. The waste material is safely removed and, where logistically feasible, the gypsum is recycled back into new plasterboard. No waste recovered through the scheme is land-filled.

The new GTEC Wasteline Direct provides customers with a competitively-priced recycling service which, despite increasing fuel charges, costs up to 40% less than the previous service. The GTEC service 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. These are issued to customers monthly and once a project is completed.

Lafarge Plasterboard is a key player in responsible waste removal and a leading recycler, now responsible for around one third of all closed-loop plasterboard recycling in Britain. 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.

“This 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. This is important for Lafarge Plasterboard and for our customers who are committed to satisfy environmental regulations.”

GTEC Wasteline Direct also provides:
• A choice of container to suit individual and project site requirements:- bags; 12 Ydł Skip; 40 Ydł Skip, or bespoke container sizes if required.
• No excess tonnage charges
• No broker charges
• A flexible pricing and delivery service
