Mattresses can be recycled through our hard rubbish collection service.
Once at the sorting facility, mattresses are separated into spring and non-spring types. Spring mattresses are fed into a slow speed shredder, which is fitted with a metal magnet recovery system.
All shredded steel is separated and sent for metal recovery. All foam recovered is bailed and on-sold to foam recyclers for re-use.
Any timber recovered from bed bases is also separated and recycled where possible.
