Mattress recycling commercial and domestic.

Contact Name: Paul Kelly
Position: Project Manager 

Boomerang Recycling provides a completely traceable, sustainable, dismantling and recycling of mattresses. The mattresses are deconstructed and stripped down. The materials are sorted in their various component parts. The Boomerang project is working on new ways to recycle component parts of mattresses, particularly the textiles which range from horsehair, to foam, polyester and cotton.

We accept mattresses from business clients from both public and private organisations. The cost for 100% recycling of all mattresses and bed bases supplied will depend on our consideration of three core measurable elements.
When calculating the fixed price:

• QUANTITY OF MATTRESSES & BED BASES SUPPLIED
• FREQUENCY OF DELIVERY
• DISTANCE FROM OUR RECYCLING FACILITY

If you wish to receive a price quote please contact us by phone or email with your particulars and requirements. We will be happy to answer any questions / queries you may have.

As worldwide demand for raw materials continues to grow it needs to be counterbalanced by greater efforts to recycle. Much of what is termed “waste” is often a valuable resource disposed of incorrectly. Greater recycling and reuse will help ease pressures on primary raw materials, some which are in limited supply, and others that may be considered conflict materials. Greater resource efficiency, including in extraction, processing and production will reduce demand on energy and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

Over the past several decades, the concept of a circular economy that emulates natural systems has attracted the attention of thought leaders in fields from material science to industrial ecology. At its core, a circular economy aims to ‘design out’ waste. Products are designed for disassembly and reuse— in their entirety, or on a material/component level – whilst being supported by a shift towards licensing ‘performance’ over selling ‘products’.

Consumer goods account globally for approximately 60 per cent of total consumer spending and 35 per cent of material inputs into the economy.

The European Commission adopted the Communication “Towards a circular economy: a zero waste programme for Europe” and annex to establish a common and coherent EU framework to promote the circular economy.

Turning Europe into a more circular economy means:
• boosting recycling and preventing the loss of valuable materials;
• creating jobs and economic growth;
• showing how new business models, eco-design and industrial symbiosis can move us towards zero-waste;
• reducing greenhouse emissions and environmental impacts.

As part of the circular economy package, the Commission also adopted a legislative proposal to review recycling and other waste-related targets in the EU and annex. Achieving the new waste targets would create 180 000 new jobs, while making Europe more competitive and reducing demand for costly scarce resources.
