Popular advice is that we should change our mattress every five years. Considering we spend up to a third of our lives in bed, our mattress has to contend with a lot and put up with a lot of use. Where furniture stores would once include mattress disposal with the price of your new bed, many no longer offer this service. That’s where we come in.

Mattress disposal in Eastbourne and Lewes
When you replace your bed or mattress, you will have three main options to dispose of your old one if the furniture store won’t take it away.
- You could take it to your local recycling centre.
- Pay for bulk item removal from the council.
- Work with Collect Your Old Bed.
Taking your old mattress to a recycling centre requires you to have a family-sized car, estate or van. It also requires two people to carry a double or king-size mattress safely. It should be free to dispose of your mattress but may involve queuing for a disposal spot.
Bulk item collection
Eastbourne and Lewes councils offer bulk item collection to all residents that includes old mattresses. There is a charge though. Quite a significant one. Lewes District Council charges £55 for 1 to 5 items. Eastbourne Borough Council charges £50 for 1 to 3 items. Those are some of the highest fees of anywhere in the country!
