All drywall must be tested for asbestos content.
If the testing indicates that it does not
contain asbestos, the facilities below will accept gypsum drywall for recycling. The gypsum and paper will be separated and reused or recycled for a variety of purposes including composting or manufacturing new sheets of drywall.
If the testing indicates that it does
contain asbestos, it is accepted at Hartland landfill as controlled waste, by appointment only. Documentation of testing must be available for review.

Note: Drywall is banned from the garbage at Hartland Landfill
