COVID-19 update:

As per the Premier’s announcement on Sunday 2 August, we have been directed to move to Stage 4 restrictions. Find out more about how this will impact Council services in our COVID-19 services update.

Mattresses

Mattresses can be recycled through our hard rubbish collection service, or can be collected for recycling by Bed Collect.

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.
