Mattresses

Mattresses can be recycled through our hard rubbish collection service.

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.
