An innovative trial to recycle worn-out mattresses from homes across north London has saved 13,600 mattresses – approximately 400 tonnes of waste – from landfill or incineration. Run by ACR+ member NLWA and London Energy Ltd, plans are now in progress to make the free scheme permanent at eight Reuse and Recycling Centres (RRCs) across north London, ensuring that the finite materials in mattresses are no longer lost but are reused to make new products with lower CO₂ footprints. NLWA will soon launch more recycling trials at its RRCs including for polystyrene, crisp packets, and coffee pods.
