Need to dispose of an old mattress? Looking for mattress recycling in Bolton? Bought a new bed and need to have someone collect your old mattress? Collect Your Old Bed can help!
Bolton has an impressive recycling rate of 47%, one of the highest in the country. Collect Your Old Bed is happy to help build on that with cost-effective mattress recycling.
Mattress disposal in Bolton
We are advised to change our mattress every five to eight years. With an estimated population of 194,000 people, that’s a lot of mattresses!
Until recently, bed retailers would collect your old mattress when delivering your new one. Now you either have to pay a hefty fee or dispose of it yourself. Neither of which is ideal.
If you need to dispose of your mattress in Bolton, you typically have three options.
- Take it to your nearest recycling centre
- Have Bolton council collect it
- Let Collect Your Old Bed recycle it
Take it to your nearest recycling centre
Bolton is fortunate enough to have multiple recycling centres. Five of which will accept mattresses, Salford Road, Cemetery Road, Chichester Street, Hurstwood Court and Lumns Lane.
If you have a car large enough to fit the mattress and don’t mind the queues, this is a viable option.
Have Bolton council collect it
Bolton council offers a bulk item collection service to all residents. It costs £35 for up to five items or £70 for up to 10 items. There is no option to have the council just remove your old mattress so this could work out expensive!
Let Collect Your Old Bed recycle it
The third option is to have Collect Your Old Bed remove your old mattress. We guarantee to recycle every part of the mattress. All 100% of the mattress will be broken down and prepared for use elsewhere.
We have a simple mattress recycling service that makes it as easy as possible to dispose of your old mattress. Simply enter your postcode, select a day for us to collect and we’ll take care of everything!
