CALL US TODAY FOR A GREAT PRICE ON GREEN GORILLA GYPSUM

Please note: the minimum order quantity is a 1-tonne bag.

Gypsum is a soft sulfate mineral and widely used as a fertiliser, compost or cement additive. It's also used as the main constituent in many forms of plaster, blackboard chalk and plasterboard.

Green Gorilla gypsum is recycled from plasterboard off-cuts, usually sourced from our building and construction partners. Our waste processing facility mechanically separates the gypsum from the paper in the plasterboard off-cuts.

The recycled gypsum is supplied in bulk to the horticulture and agricultural industries were it as a 100% natural additive to fertiliser and compost. It can also be applied directly to the ground as a soil conditioner.

The construction and demolition industries create 50% of all waste in New Zealand. More than 70% of the waste produced from a construction site is able to be recycled.

We’re proud supporters of product stewardship. That means we’re taking responsibility for the products we make, sell and buy so they don’t end up in landfill.

Green Gorilla's Construction and Demolition Waste Processing Facility, diverts over 75% of incoming waste from construction, demolition, building and renovation waste from Auckland's landfills. We additionally work on a wood-chipping activity that transforms chemically treated wood into biofuel and untreated wood into an excellent quality landscaping chip. 

Are you in the construction, demolition, building or renovation industry? Start using Gorilla Bags for your plasterboard waste and divert it away from Auckland landfill.

WHAT HAPPENS TO CONSTRUCTION WASTE AT GREEN GORILLA

Watch this short Ministry of the Environment video of our Construction and Demolition Waste Processing Facility.
Hosted by Green Gorilla CEO Elaine Morgan, the video takes a look behind the scenes of our operation.

The uptake of green building techniques in the construction industry has helped better manage the number of waste materials, however, it still creates large amounts of waste that can be recycled and diverted from New Zealand landfill. This is where our specialist waste processing facility is a vital link in processing to reduce landfill and create recycled by-products.
