American Gypsum Recycling
American Gypsum Recycling cares for our planet through sheetrock recycling and waste stream reduction! Making a Positive Impact!
WHY RECYCLE SHEETROCK
Sheetrock is approximately 90% gypsum and 10% paper. Gypsum materials consist of calcium sulfate dihydrate. Sulfate-reducing bacteria convert sulfates to toxic hydrogen sulfide gas. Gypsum put into landfills will decompose, releasing up to a quarter of its weight in hydrogen sulfide. Moreover, methanogenic bacteria also thrive in such an environment and convert the paper in the plasterboard to methane gas which is a potent greenhouse gas. This reality compels American Gypsum Recycling to remove Sheetrock from the waste stream and recycle it back into the agricultural and cement industries.
