Drywall and Building Materials

Drywall Disposal

Customers bringing in drywall are required to submit a Drywall/Asbestos Waste Declaration and Acknowledgement form to the scale house. Forms can be picked up at City Hall (8550 Young Road) or the Bailey Landfill. An example form can be referred to through the attachment "Drywall/Asbestos Waste Declaration and Acknowledgement Form." By signing the form, the customer agrees to accept the full liability for all clean-up costs associated with dumping undisclosed asbestos containing material.

Drywall will only be accepted if one of these conditions is met:

  • Clean cuts of drywall without tape, texture coating, mud, or joint compound.
  • The drywall is date stamped 1990 or newer (not every piece in a load needs to be date stamped, but at least one piece must be and the load must appear consistent or additional date stamps and/or asbestos testing will be required).  Please ensure the date stamp is clearly visible to the landfill operator upon entry.
  • Laboratory test results or a hazardous materials assessment report from a Qualified Person indicating there is no asbestos in the drywall. A hard copy of the test results or report is required, must be less than 5 months old, and the description must match the drywall in question. For example, if the description on the test results or report indicates that a piece of drywall with blue paint was tested, the drywall being disposed of must visibly show blue paint.
  • The drywall is confirmed to contain asbestos and has been double-bagged in the appropriate 0.15 mm or 6 mil poly hazardous waste bags (maximum bag size 38" x 60"). Please refer to the attachment "Proper Bag Tying Techniques & Bag Suppliers."
