20 x 40ft high cube shipping containers – baled mattresses
These had been sitting at the Port of Felixstowe for some 18 months.
Containers needed to be be de-vanned, and goods disposed of although many landfill sites refused to take such large quantities as mattresses are very difficult to landfill and can cause issues over the life time of the site.
We identified a company that could shred the mattresses enabling the material to be separated from the steel springs.
The material was used as a waste fuel and the metal was recycled thus avoiding landfill and reducing final costs.
