Register of Approved Mattress Recyclers (RAMR)
RAMR – the Register of Approved Mattress Recyclers – has been set up on behalf of businesses and other stakeholders engaged in the collection and recycling of mattresses in the United Kingdom.
It is the brainchild of a steering group comprising two leading UK trade associations, the Textile Recycling Association (TRA) and the National Bed Federation (NBF), a number of mattress recyclers, manufacturers, retailers, waste management firms and local authority representatives.
Together they have established a new company, the Mattress Recycling Association Ltd, which will administer RAMR. The MRA is governed by an elected Council of member representatives. It will in its early stages be administered jointly by the TRA and NBF.
If you are from a mattress recycling business based in the UK, Isle of Man, Channel Islands or the Republic of Ireland, it would be in your interest to join this register.
