The innovative program involves partnering with The Furniture Recycling Group (TFR), a mattress recycling specialist that manually disassembles the items and separates their components for recycling. Since 2012, TFR has successfully recycled over 3.5 million mattresses, diverting an impressive 30,000 tonnes of material back into the economy.
