I disposed of a smaller amount of trash drywall by scattering it under trees which
had weeds/vegetation underneath.  Volume of sheetrock was not enough to smother
weeds, and I never even thought about the paper blowing away; I guess the weeds
trapped it all.  Average size of sheetrock pieces was maybe 6" sq.
