Recycled Mattresses Saves Landfill Spaces

A 2012 pilot survey around the Perth and Peel regions estimated 2 to 4 mattresses being dumped at verge collections per 100 residents. This roughly adds to potentially 34,000-68,000 mattresses reaching landfills from mere verge collections covering a population of 1.7 million. Damaged mattresses remain non-viable for re-trading; prompting social enterprises to push the concept of restoring and reusing damaged mattresses.

Concept Selling
