Contract Soft Furnishing Recycling
The Furniture Recycling Group started operations in Dec 2010 as EOL Recycling after months of research into recycling processes and textile and material outlets.
The vast majority of soft furnishings end up in landfill with only a very small amount being donated to charities as re-use.
With furniture amounting to just fewer than 3% of the total household waste produced, the current disposal route of landfill is unsustainable. Concentrating on beds and mattresses we perfected a dismantling process which separates the 14 different material types.
Our main activity was to source sustainable outlets for all of the materials generated. Once the outlets were found we started with a small site in Preston, Lancashire.
Since then, our business has grown significantly and The Furniture Recycling Group currently operates from three main facilities with more sites in the pipeline as demand for alternatives to landfill disposal continues to rise.
Our current operations are based in:
- Blackburn, Lancashire
- Riddings, Derbyshire
With over 195,000 mattresses recycled so far and our average recycling rate of 96% with the remainder going to energy from waste.
