Renfrewshire Council


The household waste and recycling centres in Renfrewshire are equipped to take plasterboard. These items should be put into the mixed waste skips.

If you have building materials you need to get rid of, consider the following options:


Go online to sites like Freecycle and Freegle to give it away for free

Try advertising your surplus building materials online at sites such as eBay or Gumtree

Friends, family and local events

Ask family and friends if they need them for any building projects they have planned

Check locally - a community project near you may have a use for your building bits and pieces

Advertise in local papers, shop windows or on community noticeboards 

What else can I do?

Find your nearest recycling centre on the Renfrewshire Council website.

Alternatively you can arrange for a skip to be delivered to your home to dispose of your building materials by a waste disposal company.
