What happens to the old mattresses?

Our recycling partner takes care of the recycling. Many materials are used in mattresses: fabric, polyurethane/PU foam, cotton, wool, latex, wood and steel springs. Most materials can be recycled (85% to 90% is possible). The foam is used as an insulation material or as an underlay for carpets, judomats or cow mattresses. The wood is used as secondary fuel. The cotton and wool is re-used as a cleaning cloth. The steel springs are re-used as scrap. Only the outer cover (ticking) remains to be burned.
