Mattress collection in Aylesbury Vale
Disposing of your old mattress used to be so simple. Buy a new bed or mattress and the retailer would take the old one away. While a few retailers still offer a collection service, it’s no longer free.
Increased costs and liabilities now prevent most retailers from collecting your old mattress. That’s where Collect Your Old Bed comes in.
Collect Your Old Bed provides a simple service that solves a significant problem. That of disposing of your old mattress.
Typically you have two options when you need to get rid of your old mattress. You can:
- Take it to your local household recycling centre.
- Have it collected by Buckinghamshire County Council.
Using a household recycling centre in Aylesbury Vale
Buckinghamshire has three household recycling centres. Aston Clinton, Raban’s Close in Aylesbury and Yonder Slade in Buckingham.
They are open all week, with Aston Clinton and Buckingham being open 7 days a week. Each is open to the public and currently accept mattresses from the general public.
Buckinghamshire County Council bulky waste collection
If you don’t have a car or don’t want to go to the recycling centre, the council will collect your old mattress for you. The Bulky Waste Collection service will collect your mattress on Wednesdays each week.
It isn’t free though. It costs £46 for up to 3 items with no single item option. That’s quite expensive compared to other councils!
There is a third way.
Mattress recycling with Collect Your Old Bed
Using the Collect Your Old Bed service is very straightforward:
- Simply enter your postcode.
- Book a collection day from the options
- Leave the rest to us!
Our team will collect your old mattress on the day you set and take it to our recycling centre. From there we recycle 100% of the mattress.
Councils are working hard to improve recycling rates but there is still a long way to go. Even if you place items in recycling, there is no guarantee it will be recycled. Most councils collect more recycling than they have capacity for so some will still end up in landfill or be incinerated.
