All of us know the feeling of jumping onto a brand new mattress for the first time. The feeling of complete relaxation is second to non. But like anything else, the old mattress is left to collect dust, while the new and improved mattress takes the old’s place.
If you’ve got old mattresses lying in the garage collecting dust, it is time to think about having them removed. Not only will you be saving space, but you are also going to be avoid having to consider dust mites investing the mattress and the area its sitting in. Disposing of mattresses is what we do best. Our team will collect your mattress and have it properly disposed of.
Our mattress removal service is an easy and inexpensive way to dispose of your old mattress. You simply need to book your appointment and we’ll look after everything. It is as straightforward as that! No matter if you need to have one mattress or more, queen-sized or perhaps king-sized mattress removed, we’ve got you covered.
Mattresses have been found to be 85% to 95% recyclable however sadly only 16% are recycled in the UK, with the rest being incinerated for waste to energy or shredded and sent to landfill. Recycling centres take the mattress apart and recycle the components such as foam padding, metal springs and coconut fibres in different ways. For example, foam padding can be reused to make carpet underlay and metal springs can be melted down to be used again for a new product.
Mattresses don’t belong in landfill – they take up a lot of space and more than ten years to decompose, polluting soil and groundwater in the process as a result of their non-biodegradable parts. But the challenge is that it takes such a lot of time and money to break them down into their constituent materials that recycling them is less cost-effective than sending to landfill.
We charge £42 (£35 ex VAT) to remove just a mattress, or £18 (£15 + VAT) per mattress to remove one as part of a larger clearance. A larger clearance would be ideal if you had other junk to get rid of such as fridges, carpet, sofas and other household bulky items. The team can remove it from inside the property for no extra cost, or you can put it outside so you don’t need to be there when they come.
