Bulky waste prevention & reuse

Printer-friendly version

Since the start of 2014, Dublin City Council has diverted both bicycles and mattresses from landfill by segregating them at their CA Sites. The bicycles are collected by Rothar http://www.rothar.ie free of charge for reuse in their local shop on Fade Street.

The mattresses are recycled by Eco Mattress Recycling at their facility in Glasnevin. The wood is sold as fuel, the metals go for recycling and the fabric is shredded and used for fuel in cement kilns.
