Mattress Collection & Disposal Services

About our mattress pick up and disposal

Did you know that the Sleep Council recommends replacing your mattress every 7 years? When it comes to buying a new mattress, removing your old mattress before its replacement is delivered can be a stressful task – especially as it is not a simple task. In fact, removing a bulky mattress from your property can be hard work and ensuring it is disposed of appropriately and recycled isn’t always guaranteed if you dispose of it yourself.

Our mattress removal and recycling services make it easier for you to live sustainably. We can remove your old mattresses from your home and dispose of them in a sustainable, environmentally friendly way at minimal cost to you. What more could you want? 

What can we collect?

We have extensive expertise in collecting, clearing, and recycling various types of mattresses and materials, including:

  • Memory foam
  • Innerspring
  • Latex
  • Adjustable air

We do everything we can to recycle the mattresses we collect because they are made of a variety of recyclable components. Mattress foam, for example, will be recycled into carpet padding, the textiles and fibres used can be used in a variety of recycled goods, and the steel that makes up the mattress’ springs can be recycled many times. 

This dedication to recycling will extend the life of your mattress and help to save the environment.

Frequently asked questions about our mattress removal service

Where do I need to leave my mattress for collection? Can you collect inside?

We can collect old mattresses from inside your property, including from upstairs, as long as it is safe to access. Our mattress removal team consists of at least two team members, in order to ensure they will be able to carry your old sofa out of your property and into our vehicle with ease and at speed. 

However, if you are going to be out at the time of collection, you will need to leave your mattress easily accessible for our team outside of your property.

What to do if my mattress is in good condition?

If your old mattress is in good condition (including no stains and rips) and still has the correct labels attached, you might want to consider giving it away to someone else to reuse rather than throwing it away. Often, local hospices, women’s refuges, or homeless shelters are in need of charitable donations, like mattresses, so be sure to get in touch to find out if they are in need. In many cases, charities will organise a free collection of your old mattress. 

How quickly can you remove my old mattress? 

When getting a new mattress, we know how important it is to get rid of the old one quickly. This is why our mattress removal service is available on the same day or next day, depending on where you live in the country. In urban areas such as London, Manchester, Leeds and Edinburgh (to name a few), our team is available for pick-up on the same day, including Saturdays. But to double-check, be sure to contact us

Is getting rid of a mattress expensive?

Disposing of your mattress doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, depending on which method you choose, it doesn’t have to cost anything at all. It is, however, a more time-consuming and complex task than hiring a professional team for mattress removal.

How to dispose of a double mattress?

Disposing of a double mattress is much like getting rid of a king-sized one. You can look into donating it to charity (only if it is in good condition), taking it to your local recycling centre or giving it to a friend. 

By far the easiest choice is hiring a professional removal company to take it away for you, so you won’t have to lift a finger. 

How to dispose of a king-size mattress?

A king-sized mattress can be tough to dispose of as it is heavy and cumbersome. Although you do have options such as taking it to the tip or applying for a special collection from the council, it is perhaps more convenient to get a professional removal team to dispose of it for you. 

Get in touch with our team today, who will be able to collect and get rid of your king-size mattress quickly. 

Do I need to replace my mattress if it has bed bugs? 

If you suspect your mattress has a bed bug infestation, then you only have two choices: call in pest control services or get rid of it completely. If your mattress is more than six years old, then it is a good idea to replace it rather than go to the trouble of calling out the exterminators. 

Knowing how to dispose of a mattress with bed bugs is vital to make sure you follow current guidelines and health considerations. 

Who can remove my mattress? 

Mattresses are bulky pieces of furniture, so there are only a select few people who can deal with them. Rather than having to find a way to dispose of it yourself, clearance experts are here to remove your old mattress as soon as possible, with same-day pickups available.

There are also other options for who can dispose of your mattress

What should I do with my spare mattress? 

If you have a spare mattress that you would like to keep, you should know the best methods for storing an extra mattress

However, they are very big and take up a lot of room, so if you don’t think you’ll use them, it’s best to get rid of any spare mattresses.

What do I do with my old bed? 

Knowing what to do with your old bed frame, as well as your mattress, can be a tricky task due to their sheer size. 

RecycleZone provides a variety of waste collection and disposal services, including bulky waste removal. This means we can dispose of your old bed and mattress at the same time, making your life a little simpler.

Can I take my old mattress to the tip? 

Yes, you are usually able to take a mattress to your local recycling centre. However, keep in mind that these sites can get very busy, and you will be required to do all of the lifting of the mattress. 

In contrast to this, a private company offering a mattress removal service will do the lifting and disposal for you. 

More information about where you’re able to dispose of your old mattress can be found here.


As well as mattresses, we can remove other furniture and waste. To make a booking, get in touch with us today – the process is quick and simple!
