Est. in 1985, New West Gypsum Recycling was born from a need to recover and recycle gypsum wallboard production scrap and construction waste – we are one of the first companies to return waste materials back into a valuable resource. Our goal is that no gypsum material ever ends up in a landfill. Since there is no product degradation during the recycling process, gypsum is aninfinite re-use material. NWGR works with recycling associations, green building associations and governments to educate and bring awareness to industry stakeholders so that landfill does not have to be a choice for gypsum. The paper backing material is baled and re-used or repurposed, any post-consumer materials, like nails or screws, are culled from the gypsum recycling process and moved through separate recycling streams.
