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?
You’ll be pleased to know that, where possible, we recycle as much as your old mattress as we can. In fact, we pledge that 90% of our waste is recycled, and if it can’t we ensure that it doesn’t end up in landfill. Alternatively, if your mattress is in good condition, we may decide to rehome your furniture to those in need, such as hostels or hospices to name a few.
Some bed and mattress retailers offer a drop off and pick up service which is free of charge, swapping your old for a new and recycling for you. However, some retailers don’t offer this or may offer an extra fee to do so. If you’re looking to dispose of your mattress quickly and efficiently, RecycleZone can do it for you at an affordable, fixed price to rival all retailers.
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.
As well as mattresses, we can remove other furniture and waste. Take a look at our other services here. To make a booking, get in touch with us today or book via our online portal – it’s quick and simple!
