NBF Recycle

Welcome to NBF Recycle

NBF Recycle LogoMattress recycling is growing – driven partly by both consumers and businesses wishing to be ‘green’ and partly by the evidently practical limitations of continuing to direct end of life mattresses into landfill. But there remain many obstacles to overcome and decisions to be made as to the best way in which mattress recycling and end of life should evolve in both the near and further future.

It is our intention to bring together here as much useful information on the subject as we can find – whether it be published reports on mattress recycling; relevant policy documents from government agencies (England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland included); contact details and information on mattress recyclers; links to other countries and organisations with an interest in mattress recycling etc.

We will also make available here our own biennial survey on the state of mattress recycling in the UK – see the links Below.

As well as a useful source of information, we hope NBF Recycle will stimulate debate and maybe even solutions which work for all concerned – consumers, retailers, businesses, bed manufacturers and suppliers, local authorities, waste companies and law makers.
