Recycling centres and points

We don't accept plasterboard at any site (except for Fraserburgh and Peterhead) at present. We are working to install skips for this material at most Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRC), but please bear with us for the moment. Householders may find details of private sector plasterboard disposal companies on the internet.
