GRAUKI comes together to tackle plasterboard waste.
The Gypsum Re-processors Association UK & Ireland is an unincorporated body set up by 5 founder members from the industry.
It has become clear that there is a need for the industry to come together to form a cohesive body which can speak with a single voice on issues that directly affect the successful and sustainable operation of the gypsum recycling industry and to promote the responsible treatment of gypsum waste.
What does GRAUKI do?
Our actvities fall into a range from contributing to future Legislation decisions through membership of steering and/or action groups through to seeking out alternative sustainable solutions for gypsum waste which can broaden the scope of activity, capture greater volumes of otherwise wasted gypsum, help to preserve raw materials and discourage irresponsible disposal by rogue traders.
Engagement with the Environment Agency, Defra, WRAP and others has, up to now been carried out by the gypsum re-processors independently and although this has been helpful the Association believes that a combined approach will help effective lobbying and promotion of the industry as a whole; membership of the Association will also prove to be an indicator to existing and future customers of the credentials of each member.
