Mattress removal in Bournemouth
Mattress recycling with Collect Your Old Bed is the responsible way to dispose of your old mattress once you buy a new one. It means little goes to landfill, it won’t be fly-tipped and it won’t be incinerated.
Disposing of your old mattress
The common advice is to replace your mattress every five to eight years. Given how much time the average person spends in bed, investing in a new mattress has to be one of the most important purchases we make.
Not that long ago, furniture stores would take your old mattress away for you, but not all stores do that anymore. This leaves you three main options:
- Take your old mattress to your local recycling centre
- Arrange for council bulk item collection
- Use Collect Your Old Bed
Take the mattress to your local recycling centre
Bournemouth residents have three recycling centres, Millhams Community Recycling Centre, Christchurch Household Recycling Centre and Nuffield Household Waste and Recycling Centre. Each will take your old mattress and dispose of it.
These recycling centres are very good but they get very busy. Some weekends you might even have to queue to get in!
Arrange for the council bulk item collection
Bournemouth, like many councils, offers a bulk item collection scheme that can take away large items such as furniture, white goods and mattresses.
