Usel operate a Circular Economy model that contributes to the wider
Circular Economy through the recycling of mattresses, carpet, furniture, plastic, cardboard and waste electrical items. This is a key driver in our commitment to
creating a positive social impact in the communities and environments in which we operate. Our aim is to keep the resources within the economy until the product has reached the end of its life cycle.
By operating a Circular Economy model, it allows us to create more sustainable jobs for people with disabilities and health conditions across Northern Ireland.
Usel is Northern Ireland’s only mattress recycling provider diverting over 1,000 tonnes of waste from landfill every year.
Usel collect mattresses from council recycling centres, bed retailers and hotels across the province and brings them back to our licenced facility. 100% of mattresses collected are diverted from landfill.
Usel work in partnership with a number of local authorities to recycle their mattresses including Belfast City Council, Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council and Derry City & Strabane.
