Bounce Back Recycling can help you reduce the level of waste going to landfill in your local authority area. Mattresses account for, on average 15,000 tons of landfill waste per year.

Diverting mattresses from landfill and recycling is good waste management practice and it is good for the environment. It also helps local authorities to meet national and EU targets on recycling. For example, the recycling of municipal waste must be increased to 55% by 2025.

Also, under Ireland’s Landfill Directive, no more than 10% of Municipal Waste can go to landfill by 2035. Taking bulky items like mattresses out of the mix will support local authorities to achieve these targets.

Our mattress recycling service to local authorities:

  • We remove mattresses from your civic amenity sites
  • We can collect them on regular monthly or weekly dates or as required
  • We can provide a container on site for mattress storage, to avoid contamination with general waste

We already partner with a number of local authorities to deliver this service and to deliver mattress and furniture amnesty days under the anti-dumping initiative. To date, we have recycled 70,000 bulky waste items. This helps to fulfil waste reduction and recycling targets.

Bounce Back Recycling has a wider environmental appeal as our team deconstruct the mattresses by hand. This produces a higher rate and quality of recovered materials than mechanical recycling does.

Environmental Benefits

Mattresses, in particular cause many problems in landfill where they may take up to 100 years to
decompose. Our service reduces the level of waste taking up space in landfill sites. Mattresses are
deconstructed by hand, producing a higher rate and quality of recovered materials than mechanical
recycling. This ensures the recovery of valuable materials for the circular economy.

 

Social Benefits

Bounce Back Recycling is a social enterprise that delivers social, environmental societal impacts that make economic sense. We provide employment and career progression opportunities for people who face barriers in the labour market.

 

Economic Benefits

We install containers on-site at civic amenity centres, so they can be easily accessed by the public at a
local level. This ensures that there is a cost-effective recycling service in place for domestic and
commercial clients. We also provide a door-to-door collection service to members of the public who find
it difficult to transport bulky waste. This will reduce illegal dumping and the significant clean-up costs
associated with this problem. The recovered materials are a valuable resource that are also recycled to
reduce the manufacturing of new materials.
