    disposal of Plaster Board?? 11th Oct 16 at 1:44 PM
    We're having our bathroom re done inside our property. The plumbers/joiners put the plaster board in the skip we had for the rubble.
    The skip company removed all plaster board explaining they can't take it.

    What is the correct way to get rid of plaster board? Some mentioned I may have to register our car with out property to take it to the local recycling center is this true ??

    That is ridiculous.

    As someone has said it will just mean more fly-tipping.

    Yes, but Cornwall Council admitted on BBC News last week that it's still cheaper from their POV to charge and then deal with the fly tipping.

    (Probably because land owners mostly deal with it themselves, sometimes incurring charges from the council in the process!)

    I've never been so glad my own fields are not accessible from the public highway.

    You wont need to register your car to go to the tip/recycling centre but it will be messy.
