ENVIRONMENT

Ketchikan Drywall Services, Inc. is a very environmentally conscious company. Over the last three years, KDS has recycled over 4,530 tons of gypsum wall board scrap. In addition, KDS has recycled nearly 50,000 lbs of scrap metal in the last six months alone.

 

One of the products Ketchikan Drywall Services, Inc. uses is G-P Gypsum’s “Tough Rock” wallboard. “Tough Rock” wallboard is made using a combination of natural gypsum and flue gas desulphurization (FGD) Gypsum. FGD Gypsum is a byproduct of coal fired power plant scrubbers, which remove acid rain producing sulfur dioxide stack emissions. In addition, KDS uses a low rated Volatile Organic Compound prep-coat primer, which cuts down on the chemical gas emissions into the air.

Ketchikan Drywall Services is dedicated to doing its part to help the environment and takes pride in recycling 98% of its operations waste.  

 

On or after April 22, 2010 firms working in pre-1978 homes and child-occupied facilities must be certified and use lead-safe work practices during renovations.  The EPS may authorize states, territories and tribes to enforce the rule.  KDS currently employs three people certified by the EPA in lead safety.
