Soft Landing is a social business providing a conscious recycling solution for the Illawarra.
Did you know?
Australia sends 1.25 million mattresses to landfill each year.
Mattresses are the most common items put out on the curb side for council collections and almost all go to landfill.
The average mattress in a landfill takes up to 0.75 cubic meters of space and contains 12.5kg of steel, 2kg of wood and 1.5kg of foam.
Over three years Soft Landing will divert 78,260 mattresses from going to landfill; this equates to 54,782 cubic meters or 2,739 semi trailer loads.
Our Bellambi/ Illawarra drop off is closed for renovations from today. We are excited to reopen our newly upgraded drop off facility around the 6th April 2020. Don’t forget you can still book your pick up online at https://www.softlanding.com.au/online-booking/ during this time. All other sites continue to operate as usual.
Did you know your end of life mattress (and bed base) can be made into metal roofing, carpet underlay and mulch instead of taking up valuable landfill space? Book your mattress pick up with Soft Landing today https://www.softlanding.com.au/online-booking/
We were excited to welcome Andy Marks and Dr Nik Rubenis to our Hume ACT site last month for a tour. We appreciated their time and genuine interest in our operations and enjoyed showcasing the work of our incredible team.
