Hamilton Plasterboard Recycling Services

Have you ever wondered what happens to the plasterboard waste from your building site?

Every new build in New Zealand creates at least 700 kg of plasterboard waste and a large amount of this ends up in skip bins and therefore in landfill mixed with other construction and demolition waste.

Plasterboard and Gyprock waste is 100% recyclable into reusable products including gypsum and paper. 

But it’s not all bad… 

Hamilton-based building sites can now order ‘plasterboard only’ collection bags from Purpose Fill Waste Services. Our bags are the ideal way to sustainably recycle your excess plasterboard offcuts. The 2m3 bags are made out of durable polyethylene and are tough enough to handle up to 1000kg gib offcuts. Simply fill the bag with your plasterboard offcuts then call or email us to arrange a site pick-up. The full bag is then sent to a specialist recycling provider where offcuts are reprocessed for use in products including compost and agricultural products. 

Using our Plasterboard Bags will reduce waste going to landfill. 


  • Building owners and the New Zealand construction industry are increasingly demanding more environmentally responsible construction processes. 
  • Landfill disposal costs are also rising as existing sites become increasingly capacity constrained. 
  • The Purpose Fill plasterboard off-cut collection service provides a simple way to reduce the amount of plasterboard off-cut waste destined for landfill. 


  The Purpose Fill plasterboard recycling service can provide accurate waste diversion from landfill reporting to help meet your project’s Greenstar or Homestar landfill diversion targets.
