Gyspum-containing waste guidelines.

In accordance with the Environment Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2010 which came into effect on 1st April 2009, gypsum was banned from normal landfill (containing biodegradable waste) and must go into a separate cell for high sulphate waste. 

From 1st April 2009 legislation now prevents Gypsum-containing waste from going to landfill sites containing biodegradable waste and must now be disposed of at specialist sites with specific cells for high sulphate waste. 

Dental study moulds contain gypsum and plaster cast which when mixed with bio-degradable waste can produce hydrogen sulphide gas in landfill which is highly toxic and odorous.

How we do things
At Healthcare Waste Disposal we follow all guidelines set by the Environment Agency. There are two recommended disposal options for non-infectious gypsum wastes these are: 1. Gypsum recycling. 2. Landfill in a separate and specific cell.
