Scenic Mountain Drywall Recycling

The problem

When drywall is buried in landfills it has a negative affect on the environment.

Drywall is made of gypsum. When it gets wet in an environment which contains organic matter and lacks oxygen, such as a landfill, it forms a sulfate which can drain out of the material. If the sulfate leaches into water souces contamination occurs.

The sulfate can convert to hydrogen sulfide, a gas with a rotten egg odor that irritates eyes, nose, and throat. It can cause nausea, fatigue, shortness of breath and chest pain. In high concentrations, hydrogen sulfide can even be lethal.

The solution

Environmentally friendly drywall recycling!

We provide a container for your drywall scraps at a convenient location when you need it. We remove the container when it's full, and when you are finished with your project.

What happens to recycled gypsum?

We process and recycle the drywall ecologically. After drywall scraps are ground and cleaned from other construction material, it can be used for

  • Manufacture of new drywall
  • Soil amendment
  • Bedding for animals

We are a local family-owned business, operating in Rockingham County since 2015.

Our process meets all regulations for gypsum recycling.

Our roll-off system allows safe placement of a dumpster close to your building site for easy clean up of drywall scraps.
