Drywall (also called gypsum) is a unique building material that requires specialized handling and disposal. During demolition or deconstruction, the drywall must be separated from other demolition refuse and disposed of according to municipal regulations.
Because every municipality has different regulations when it comes to drywall removal, it is best to consult with a professional demolition company. J&R can help you sort out the red tape and get your drywall disposed of according to the current regulations in your municipality.
Drywall installed before 1990 may contain or be contaminated with asbestos in the tape and mud. Never attempt to separate mud from drywall, or you may be at risk of asbestos exposure.
Asbestos-contaminated drywall must be removed and disposed of by persons wearing protective equipment. We have the expertise to deal with this material safely and efficiently, so give us a call if you need assistance.
New drywall is often accepted for recycling at transfer stations and can thereby be kept out of landfills. At J&R, we do our best to keep recyclables out of landfills, and you can count on us to ensure that drywall is recycled whenever possible.
