Revolutionising Mattress Reuse – Monthly Seminar
Thursday 22 Jul 21 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join us for our next monthly seminar from 11:00 – 12:00 to hear Shaun Doran, chief executive of Bulky Bob’s speak about their latest innovation in mattress reuse. Bulky Bob’s have invested in smart, connectable automation technology to ultraclean unwanted mattresses, preventing them from going to landfill.
Bulky Bob’s collects around 15,000 used mattresses a year through its household waste collection service and reuses around 40% of these thanks to their Ultra-Cleaning Machine. This revolutionary technology uses modular robotics and control technologies to transport the mattresses along the stages of the cleaning process including a steam clean, ultra-violet irradiation, ozone, and infrared drying.
Meanwhile an imaging system assesses and monitors the effectiveness and whether there is any viable biological material still contaminating the mattress, before it is approved or passed through the cleaning process again. A barcode system ensures inventory control all the way along the supply chain.
Could this be the future of mattress reuse? Tune in to find out more.
