This article is from August 2011, and so not news. It relates to an Irish mattress recycling company called Envirogreen Recycling.
It has apparently developed a "sophisticated mattress dismantling machine" designed by an Irish engineering firm. The details of what the machine does are not revealed in the article or on the company's website. I am very curious as to what the machine actually does.
A note of correction for the article: a mattress takes up 23 cubic feet in landfill, not 23 cubic yards.
