Mattress collections in Stafford
When you buy a new bed and/or mattress, you generally have three options:
- Have the retailer collect the old mattress
- Use Staffordshire Council’s bulk waste collection service
- Take it to your local recycling centre
Have the retailer collect the old mattress
Not that long ago, retailers would collect your old bed and mattress as part of the service. Few retailers still offer that and those that do, charge for it.
Use Staffordshire Council’s bulk waste collection service
Like most councils, Staffordshire Council operates a bulk waste collection service for white goods and furniture. It isn’t free though. The current charge for collection is £48 for up to three items.
There is no single item option so this can work out expensive if all you want rid of is a mattress!
Take it to your local recycling centre
Staffordshire Council runs two recycling centres, one at St. Albans Road in Stafford and one at Beacon Road in Stone. Stafford is open 7 days a week while Stone is open Wednesday to Sunday.
If you have a car large enough to fit a mattress, this is a viable option for disposing of your old mattress. Be aware though, both centres get busy at times so there may be a queue.
There is another way to recycle your old mattress.
