We coordinate the collection of mattresses, but they are picked up by contractors. We will collect mattresses within 24-48 hours after your clean up service. Mattresses are to be placed next to goods and not on top or under items.
Please do not remove mattress from the footpath after your clean up service has been provided.
What happens to my mattress once taken?
The mattresses are either refurbished or recycled. Mattresses good enough to be refurbished are:
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.
For information or to report if your mattress is not collected, please call us on 02 9839 6000.
