End of life mattresses are a complex and bulky product which have traditionally been managed within a linear economy model.

We’re delighted to be able to to share findings from our mattress research carried out as part of CRNI’s 2021 partnership with the EPA, looking at the opportunities to improve mattress recycling.

This report builds on the efforts of the mattress working group, which was established through the National Waste Prevention Programme.
