NLWA 80pxACR+ member NLWA announced that from 21 June 2021, a trial of mattress recycling commenced in north London. In line with NLWA’s ambition to extract maximum value from waste, this initiative represents a significant investment in the circular economy, extending the life of valuable materials such as steel, cotton and polyesters. NLWA and partners will start collecting mattresses for recycling from all seven of NLWA’s reuse and recycling centres.

It is thought that the trial could see up to 700 mattresses recycled every week, equivalent to around 18 tonnes. Mattresses can be made of up to 17 different component materials. Around 90% of the mattress materials will get recycled, with any remaining non-recyclable material going to energy from waste.
