Mattress disposal in Hertsmere
Buying a new bed takes time and likely trying out lots and lots of mattresses until you find the one that fits your needs. As we spend around a third of our lives in bed, getting that perfect fit is essential. The one thing you shouldn’t have to worry about is disposing of your old one. That’s where Collect Your Old Bed comes in.
Not every furniture store offers to take away your old mattress and bed when you purchase a new one. If you find that you have to have to take care of this yourself, you have three main options. You can take it to a recycling centre, arrange for the council to collect it or book a collection with a private company like Collect Your Old Bed.
Mattress disposal and recycling centres
If you have your own transport, you can take your old mattress to Elstree Household Waste Recycling Centre on Allum Lane. The centre is open every day but gets busy at peak times.
