Gypsum waste is considered to be very problematic in the landfill

Home/C&D Waste/Gypsum waste is considered to be very problematic in the landfill

Potentially lethal hydrogen sulfite gasses (H2S) will develop in the landfill – Consequently gypsum waste should not be landfilled in the same landfill cell as organic/biodegradable waste; mono-cells for gypsum are required for safe landfilling.

In addition leachate from gypsum waste will contain sulfur that could contaminate the ground water – Consequently gypsum waste should only be diposed of in landfills with membranes and the proper leachate management systems = not inert landfills.
