Bounce Back Mattress Recycling has been established to reduce the current problem of mattresses contributing to the overflowing landfill issues in Australia by diverting a minimum of 75% of all mattress components to recycling streams. Bounce Back is the only Australian Bedding Stewardship Council (ABSC) approved mattress recycler in South Australia.
Mattress recycling has for many years been considered nonviable and, for this reason, has been a source of ongoing contention within council areas and traditional waste streams. Bounce Back is here to change that mindset, employing manual dismantling methods combined with social inclusion to provide best practice outcomes in environmental and social employment opportunities.
Mattresses are dismantled on-site using processes that maximise the recovery and recycling of individual components, providing an immediate 75% diversion to landfill, with Bounce Back continuing to explore new options in the industry to improve recycling rates and provide increased outcomes for the environment.
The recovered commodities from mattress recycling at Ottoway will be used for purposes such as:
Wood > Compost
Foam > Underlay for carpets
Steel > Baling metals recycled
Bounce Back Mattress Recycling is an initiative of SA Group Enterprises. Across its highly successful range of commercial enterprises, SA Group Enterprises is a major employer of over 600 staff, of which 350 identify with disability, receiving supports in employment.
In addition to our recycling businesses, SA Group Enterprises provides the community with a broad range of services that includes manufacturing, design, packaging services, catering, cleaning, grounds maintenance, temperature controlled storage, warehousing and wine repackaging services.
