Up to 20 percent of the construction waste on an NYC job site is gypsum wallboard. This results in about 10 million tons of gypsum wallboard debris generated each year; but only 5 percent is consistently diverted. This leaves a huge opportunity for improvement.

Understanding the full cycle of drywall and its systemic impact and potential can lead to smarter resource management. Join waste management experts as they share their experiences piloting closed loop drywall recycling in New York City.

Engage in an energetic roundtable discussion to ask questions and hear perspectives on process logistics from purchasers, manufacturers, builders and recyclers—for both existing building renovation and new construction projects.
