What do we do with the component parts?
The steel extracted is sent to a metal contractor for smelting and use in other new products.
The polyester extracted is sent to a processor who treats it and is then used in various other products e.g. filters.
The fabric and foam components are sent to a waste contractor for shredding, baling and ultimately incineration for generation of heat and electricity.
None of the materials therefore end up in landfill.
