The Plasterboard Resource Efficiency Action Plan (REAP) sets targets for reducing waste across the sector. FIS along with Build UK have been asked to commit to a reduction in waste target of 15% by 2020. There are currently no records across our sector for plasterboard waste. In order to understand the levels of plasterboard waste in the sector, the FIS Drywall Group has proposed a biannual survey of members using a single method to record waste.
