ABSC Approval for Mattress Recyclers

Soft Landing is an approved mattress recycler by the Australian Bedding Stewardship Council (ABSC) for demonstrating safe and environmentally responsible collection, storage and recovery of end-of-life mattresses and their component material

The ABSC recognises mattress recyclers like Soft Landing who meet our strict criteria for safe and environmentally responsible practices. Our approval is not given lightly; it signifies a company’s dedication to outstanding collection, storage, and recycling processes for end-of-life mattresses, adhering to our stringent guidelines and ethical standards.
Soft Landing’s hands-on recycling process exemplifies the kind of innovative method we love. Their approach not only extends the useful life of all the natural resources such as steel, timber, and foam but also significantly contributes to job creation within local communities. It’s this commitment to environmental outcomes and community impact that we are proud to acknowledge, particularly during National Recycling Week. There is a broader societal value to sustainability and Soft Landing is an excellent example of this can work.
