Let us collect and recycle your old mattress

Creating jobs

We create stable and meaningful jobs for people experiencing barriers to employment.

Supporting local communities

We don’t take our work out of area, we employ local people and we use local suppliers wherever possible.

Protecting our environment

We keep waste out of landfill, transport miles down and use recycling methods with less environmental footprint.

What can an old mattress become?
Our methods maximise re-use of materials

Timber bases to industry for mulch

Steel springs to scrap metal recyclers

Foam to carpet manufacturers for underlay

For every 35 mattresses that we collect and recycle each day, we create a job for someone who really needs one.

Soft Landing is a national social enterprise that collects and recycles mattresses to keep waste out of landfill and create jobs for people experiencing barriers to work. We operate in NSW, Victoria, WA and the ACT across six sites.
About us

Why choose Soft Landing?

REVENUE TO WAGES

We are a social enterprise with about 65% of revenue going to wages.


JOBS ARE IMPORTANT

We choose manual methods above mechanical shredding, so we can provide employment opportunities.

COMMUNITY FOCUS

While we have higher wage and training costs than other recycling businesses, we provide a greater benefit to communities through the jobs we create.

CARE FOR PLANET

We choose methods with the least environmental footprint. We don’t ship waste overseas and we avoid recycling methods that are big users of power.
SOFT LANDING CHANGES LIVES

“I like the fact I have a regular pay packet coming in each week and look forward to learning more and maybe being a Team Leader one day”.​

Our people come from all walks of life and cultures
