Rubbish removals Melbourne – international projects for mattresses and other household goods


An article on the BBC – highlights interesting projects where mattresses are being diverted from landfill in Belfast. We quote from the article below:


“As many as 800 mattresses a week are being processed at the warehouse off the Shankill Road in Belfast.


They come from council recycling centres and bed shops which dispose of customers’ used mattresses.


At the warehouse, the mattresses are stripped down to their component parts.


Polyester is sent off to make socks and fleeces.


Foam is sent to make carpet underlay and a felt layer over the springs is used in equestrian centre flooring, as well as for acoustic dampening in cars.


The steel springs are chopped up and the metal sent off for reuse.


A small amount of fabric is sent to produce energy from waste in an incinerator.


Manager Scott Jackson says more than 13,000 mattresses have been processed this year – diverting 400 tonnes from landfill.


It is estimated that there are about 215,000 mattresses in UK landfills.”


In Melbourne – there is a company that does house junk removals and then seeks to auction any valuables – potentially reducing your house removal costs. Check out Hunters and Collectors and also maybe visit some of their auctions in Dandenong.
