Recycling Operations.

Recycling Operations

As an organisation we aim to identify waste streams and under-utilised resources that can be used internally or externally by other organisations. Within our recycling mattress operation at our Belfast base we remove mattresses from landfill and recycle the internal components. The main components are foam, polyester and steel but also include a range of natural fibers like wool and cotton depending on the type of mattress. These components are then segregated and sent on to other facilities for further processing and reused in a number of different ways such as carpet underlay, acoustic dampening in cars and the steel spring is sent to a local metal recycler to be melted down for reuse.

We are the only organisation to provide this service which has resulted in creating greater employment opportunities for people with disabilities and health related conditions within our recycling operations.
