The mattress landfill crisis: how the race to bring us better beds led to a recycling nightmare
from Mika

"The development of roll-down technology – which allows mattresses to be packed into small, easily shippable boxes...."

"Theoretically, consumers can cycle between these providers for high-quality mattresses at no cost: a Wall Street Journal reporter recently calculated that if she took advantage of all the offers available, she would be able to sleep on a free mattress for eight years."

"'We've introduced a disposable mattress business model at a time when we probably should be moving in the exact opposite direction,' says Alexander."

"'Wherever waste is, there’s criminality somewhere.'"


"Allsopp and Scollick have visited the warehouses from which the scammers operate. It is common for workers to run the minute they see them, mistaking them for Environment Agency officials. (It’s the hi-vis jackets.)"
