They said it couldn’t be done, many companies have tried to develop an automated solution for recycling mattresses and bulky waste, but up to now none have yet succeeded.

Textek have invested 18 months into the research and development of the first Bespoke Mattress Shredding Line, that will divert a staggering one million mattresses a year from landfill. Its design enables the successful separation of the flock from the steel, ensuring 100% of the mattress can be recycled.

Textek believe that this line provides a stable future for mattress recycling and reduces the hard, often dangerous, manual work that is required when stripping a mattress by hand.

On average a skilled person can strip a mattress in around 7 minutes the Textek Shredding Line is able to dismantle a mattress in under 30 seconds. We plan to install more TexTek plants around the country to help with the on going challenges of mattress recycling. For more information call
