SEPA Issues Position Statement on Gypsum from Waste Plasterboard

On 28th June SEPA published a position statement on the use of recycled gypsum at farm sites.  Gypsum from waste plasterboard and other gypsum containing wastes is being used as animal bedding at farms across Scotland.  Following a number of recent livestock deaths in Scotland and Northern Ireland, SEPA has issued formal guidance on restrictions associated with the material.  When used in animal bedding, waste gypsum can produce considerable levels of hydrogen sulphide which presents a significant risk to animal and human life, as well as the environment.  SEPA therefore advises against anyone using it for this purpose until there is clear evidence to demonstrate that it does not pose such a risk.  The full position statement is available on SEPA’s website.
