SleepMaker is delighted to be a founding partner and supporter of Soft Landing
, a national mattress recycling programme operating across NSW, ACT, VIC and WA.
The scheme is designed to increase resource recovery and the diversion of waste from landfill in order to minimise the environmental, health and safety impacts of end of life mattresses.
Salvaging metal, foam and timber from mattresses diverts thousands of tonnes of waste from landfill annually. Every 10 tonnes of materials is equivalent to:
- Taking four cars off the road permanently
- Providing enough electricity to annually power 14.5 households
- Saving enough water to fill 3.5 average backyard pools
Soft Landing works with councils across each state to overcome illegal dumping, as well as servicing residents, retailers and manufacturing partners.
