Frequently Asked Questions

Can’t I just put my old mattress in a skip?

No, you actually aren’t allowed to put an old mattress in a skip for disposal.
If you do, you’ll face a charge by the skip removal company when they come to collect it.

Can’t I just get rid of my mattress for free?

Yes you can.

If you have a vehicle large enough to transport your mattress to a recycling centre or charity shop, there’s no reason you wouldn’t be able to dispose of your old mattress for free by yourself.

However, if you don’t have a suitable vehicle then a mattress removal service is your best choice.

They can even make sure your mattress gets recycled rather than ending up in landfill if it’s in good enough condition.

What’s the best way to dispose of an old mattress?

Recycle it

For the most part, mattresses can be recycled and the materials reused. If you’re not sure if you can recycle your mattress then just contact us and we’ll be able to advise you.

Donate it

Most charity shops that deal with homeware and furniture will take your old mattress off your hands. This will obviously depend on the state your mattress is in when you come to dispose of it.

You’ll also have to consider whether the charity has a collection service, or if you’ll be expected to deliver the mattress yourself.

Arrange for council collection

Many UK councils now offer a bulk item collection service so you could potentially arrange for the council to come and collect your old mattress.

Use a specialist mattress disposal service

Using a specialist mattress disposal service means you’ll be able to have it collected quickly and the disposal company will also arrange for it to be recycled if possible.

Why Is Old Mattress Disposal Such a Challenge in London?

Getting rid of an old mattress can be cumbersome for a number of reasons. You can't disassemble your unwanted mattress for storage in the artic as you would with your old beds. Foam mattresses can fold easily for convenient storage, but this is not the case for most traditional mattresses. If your next thought is to break the mattresses into smaller components and then burn them, the idea is ill-advised as it can lead to uncontainable flames and also release toxic chemical fumes. It is also not worth the trouble you could get into with your neighbours and local council authorities.

Household Waste Recycling Centres or tips offer free mattress recycling services to their residents. Recycling may seem like the most feasible way of dealing with the challenge, but this can be an equally challenging task if you don't have a large car to haul it to the nearest council tip. Additionally, the said recycling centre might be further than the mattress owner is willing to drive to get to. The challenge is even bigger for businesses, as council tips do not cater to commercial waste management- thus a hotel cannot take their old mattresses for recycling. In instances where the council is willing to make leeway for businesses, they'd have to pay for the service.

For some individuals, simply leaving the mattress on the curbside or dumping it in a rubbish skip is enough of a solution. However, these mattresses might end up in a landfill, which goes against the UK's efforts in trying to combat this environmental crisis.  So, how do you get rid of your old mattress without worrying that you're contributing to landfill sites or degrading the environment in one way or another

How Do You Dispose of Mattresses?

That said, getting rid of an old mattress might sound like an uphill battle. The good news is that we have a few eco-friendly and legal ways to get the job done. So please consider the following methods when you do decide to dispose of a mattress in London:

  • Sell it
  • Council collection
  • Donate it to a worthy charity
  • Return to your mattress retailer
  • Use a company such as LITTA that provides a mattress disposal service
When Should I Think Of Getting a New Mattress?

It's funny how we develop an attachment to our quilts, pillows and other bedding accessories. You can get used to the way memory foam mattresses arch to all your curves. But, mattresses also come with a shelf life. The Sleep Council places that shelf life at 7 years, while the National Bed Federation recommends replacing old mattresses after 8 years.

You might be wondering, didn't my mattress come with a 10-year guarantee? Here are a few notes to guide your decision to purchase a new mattress;

  • Lower Sleep Quality
  • Mattress Related Allergies
  • Back Pain
