What happens to my mattress once taken?

The mattresses are either refurbished or recycled.

Mattresses good enough to be refurbished are:

  • cleaned

  • sanitised

  • sealed in a bag

  • sold or donated through the op-shop network.

The remaining mattresses are pulled apart and the various materials used as follows:

  • steel springs are recycled as scrap metal

  • foam is reused by the carpet industry

  • husk is made into hanging baskets, door mats and mulch

  • fabric and felt pads are used to make boxing bags

  • timber is made into kindling or mulch
