dc.description.abstract This thesis is the result of a two-year (2016-2018) study through literature and document review and semi-structured interviews; many people in Manitoba from industry and government participated in the interviews, and many others in other Canadian provinces shared their knowledge and experience in the construction, gypsum manufacturing, and recycling industries. The research aimed to explore opportunities for promoting the recycling of gypsum board in Manitoba, given that gypsum is largely landfilled despite its high recyclability. Overall, this study concludes that the establishment of recycling infrastructure and minimized distance of transport are key factors in gypsum recycling. Considering these factors of importance and regional recycling conditions and circumstances, the study highlights the fact that government initiative and support through financial (dis)incentives and regulations are at the core of promoting the recycling of gypsum board in Manitoba. en_US
