- Help reduce the amount of raw materials extracted from the environment
- Help reduce air and water pollution as a result of the extraction and processing of raw materials
- Reduce landfill
For the health and safety wellbeing of our drivers and handlers, we require all mattresses to be covered in a plastic cover and no parts of the mattress to be exposed. It is also important your mattress arrives at the recycler intact to maximize its recyclability. You will receive instructions on how to separate and/or package your items through or after the booking process in an email.
1.8 million mattresses end up in landfill each year across Australia. This not only harms the environment but also imposes additional costs on local authorities for cleanup and correct disposal. Mattresses contain materials like foam, metal springs, and fabric that don’t break down easily. When you consider their large size and how difficult they are to compress, you can understand the significant amount of landfill space they occupy if not recycled.
