Drywall/gypsum

Drywall, also known as sheetrock, consists of a paper-covered, hard-packed gypsum core. Gypsum is calcium sulfate, a naturally occurring mineral. It has been touted as beneficial for breaking up compact soil, especially clay soil.

Donate new gypsum sheets to for reuse. Clean scraps of drywall from new construction projects can be recycled as a soils amendment. Otherwise, painted drywall from deconstruction projects, including nails and screws, can be disposed of as garbage, in debris boxes, or at locations that accept mixed loads of construction and demolition (C&D) materials.
