How To Recycle A Mattress

For many years it was recommended that you change your mattress every 10 years, however in recent years the Sleep Council and the mattress industry have started to suggest changing your mattress after only 7 or 8 years of use.

Well, they would say that wouldn’t they?

The Sleep Council, who describe themselves as “an impartial organisation that looks at how you can adopt healthier sleep habits and focuses on raising awareness of a good night’s sleep to health and wellbeing” are the consumer education arm of the National Bed Federation, the trade association for British bed manufacturers.

Mattress manufacturers, naturally enough, want you to buy more mattresses.

So before you get rid of that mattress, the most environmentally friendly thing to do is ask yourself if you really need a new one. Yes, if the springs are sticking in your back or your bed is uncomfortable you absolutely do need to replace your mattress, but don’t feel you have to just because an advertisement from a mattress retailer told you to!

Could Your Mattress Be Reused?

If your mattress is still usable you could give it to someone who could use it:-

  • Give it to a friend or family member.
  • Donate it to a furniture reuse charity. Find your nearest one at Reuse Network.
  • Donate it to a local charity with a furniture warehouse.
  • Advertise it on Freecycle, Freegle or a local Facebook group.

How To Recycle Your Old Mattress

So what if your mattress is not in good enough condition to reuse? What is the most eco-friendly way to dispose of your old one?

The good news is that a mattress is 100% recyclable, yet sadly only around 16% are actually recycled in the UK. The rest are incinerated or sent to landfill.

If you are buying a mattress from a large retailer, they probably will offer to take your old mattress away, either for free or for a small charge. Large retailers such as Dreams, Marks and Spencer, Mattress Online and John Lewis amongst others will take away your old mattress for recycling when you buy a new one from them, for a small charge. You will need to book this when you order your mattress.

Other retailersmaytake away your mattress, but that doesn’t mean it will be recycled; it will probably go to landfill unless they state that the mattress is recycled.

If you just need to get rid of a mattress without buying a new one there are a number of commercial companies that will take a mattress away for a fee. Some of these are specialists in mattress disposal who will state whether they send mattresses for recycling.

What Else Can I Do With An Old Mattress?

You can ask your local council if they will collect your old mattress. You will normally be charged for this, you will probably have to leave the mattress outside your property and your mattress will probably go to landfill.

You can also take your mattress to your local household recycling centre; again it will probably go to landfill.

How Are Mattresses Recycled?

The mattress is taken apart, usually by hand in an extremely labour intensive procedure, hence the higher cost of sending your mattress for recycling. The springs have to be removed to be sent for metal recycling. The foam can be recycled to make carpet underlay.

At present the textile material is difficult to recycle and will generally be used as a fuel in an energy-to-waste facility.

However an innovative new machine, the first of its type, has been developed by The Furniture Recycling Group which automates the removal of springs from old pocket spring mattresses.

Buying a new mattress will set you back anywhere between a few hundred and a few thousand pounds, so parting with even more cash to dispose of your old mattress is probably the last thing you want.

But finding a way to dispose of a mattress for free is no mean feat, especially if you want to get rid of it in a responsible way. According to a report by the National Bed Federation (NBF), 6.8 million replacement mattresses were sold in 2015, while only 879,000 were recycled. That’s a recycling rate of just 13%, which is down from 16% in 2014.

Far too many mattresses end up in landfill sites. Not only is this bad for the environment, but, given the bulky nature of mattresses, it’s also unsustainable. Many of the mattresses in landfill could have been recycled or reused. Keep reading for expert advice on how long a mattress should last and how to get rid of it once it’s passed its best.

How often should you change your mattress?

If you can’t remember how many years you’ve had your mattress, the chances are it’s time for a new one. It’s all too easy to lose track of how long you’ve been sleeping on it and, even if it still feels comfortable, it’s likely to be less supportive and less hygienic than when it was new.

The Sleep Council recommends replacing your mattress as often as every seven years, because after that time the mattress will have been subjected to more than 20,000 hours of use. That’s the equivalent of 2,555 nights – which is a lot when you consider that adults lose an average of half a pint of fluid each night and shed a pound of dead skin cells each year.

But our own durability tests reveal that the best mattresses can last up to a decade without softening, sagging or becoming less supportive. So, provided you buy a good mattress and clean it regularly, you may only have to change it every 10 years.

Find out how long different type of mattress should last below, or go to our guide on how to clean a mattress.

How long should a mattress last?

Nearly half of Which? members expect a new mattress to last more than a decade, according to a November 2017 survey of 902 members. We reckon that’s pretty optimistic, not least because there are some common misconceptions about the lifespan of a mattress.

Only one in five Which? members think a mattress will last longer if it’s bought as part of a set with a new bed base. Although buying a new bed frame is no guarantee your new mattress will last, using an old or incorrect bed frame with your new mattress certainly isn’t going to lengthen its lifespan and it may well also invalidate your warranty. Take a look at our top 10 bed shopping tips.

Some 46% of members also thought that the more you spend on a mattress the longer it is likely to last. While investing in an expensive mattress will likely mean you get better-quality fabrics and fillings, it is no guarantee of a longer lifespan. We’ve tested £200 Best Buy mattresses that perform better in our durability tests than mattresses costing more than 10 times as much.

Finally, fewer than two in 10 members agreed that foam mattresses are more durable and longer lasting than spring mattresses.

How long does a pocket sprung mattress last?

A good pocket sprung mattress should comfortably last between 8 and 10 years. Of the 49 spring mattress we’ve tested, 59% of them earn more than four stars in our tough durability tests.

After measuring the height, firmness and supportiveness of every mattress we test, we then simulate up to a decade of use by rolling a heavy barrel over the mattress 30,000 times. To do well in our durability tests, a mattress must maintain its supportiveness, firmness and height.

Our pick of the top pocket-sprung mattresses will help you pick out a long-lasting option, but you have to do your bit, too. To maximise the life of your pocket-sprung mattress, it’s essential that you follow the manufacturer’s instructions when it comes to rotating or turning the mattress.

How long does a memory foam mattress last?

Memory foam mattresses tend to perform well in our durability tests. Of the 26 memory foam, foam and latex mattresses we’ve reviewed, 93% of them score more than four stars in our lifespan test.

However, we’ve also uncovered a memory foam mattress that failed our durability test completely, making it the only Don’t Buy mattress we’ve reviewed.

And just because you buy a memory foam mattress doesn’t mean that you don’t still need to rotate it regularly, so there’s no less maintenance than a pocket-sprung option.

All in all, we wouldn’t recommend buying a memory foam mattress solely for the durability, unless it provides the supportiveness and comfort you’re looking for as well.

How to get rid of a mattress

You may be surprised by how many different ways you can dispose of your mattress. There are at least 10 different options, but some of them are expensive, environmentally damaging and even illegal, so picking the best way to get rid of your mattress can be difficult.

Will the council collect my mattress?

Most, if not all, local councils offer a bulky waste collection and disposal service, which includes beds and mattresses. But it can be surprisingly expensive and there’s often no guarantee your mattress won’t end up in landfill – many local authorities simply say that they will recycle some or all of the waste where possible.

Some councils, such as Oxford City Council, Liverpool City Council and the London Borough of Merton, offer free mattress collection, but they’re very much in the minority. Most councils charge a fee to collect bulky waste and it can be expensive – the likes of Argyll and Bute Council and Wealden District Council charge more than £50 for the service, for example.

If you live in England or Wales, you can find out how much your council will charge for bulky waste disposal by typing your postcode into the gov.uk website. If you live in Scotland or Northern Ireland, go to your council’s website and search for bulky waste disposal.

Having the council collect your mattress from your home can be convenient, but make sure you read the terms and conditions carefully. Many councils charge for the number of bulky items they’ll be collecting, but bear in mind that a bed frame and a mattress will likely count as at least two items. And items will often only be collected if they’re left in a designated spot outside the house.

Will the local tip take a mattress?

The local tip will take your old mattress, but to get it there you’ll need a vehicle big enough to fit it in. If the boot of your car isn’t big enough to fit the mattress when flat, you may find that it fits if you roll the mattress up as best as possible and fasten it using some rope.

But that’s a lot of effort to go to when the mattress may well just end up in landfill anyway. You may decide you’d rather go to the extra effort of taking it to a dedicated recycling facility, or decide you’d rather pay for the convenience of the council or a specialist disposal company coming to collect it from your house.

Can you recycle a mattress?

At the very least, some parts of your mattress will be recyclable, and it’s possible that all of it will be. And yet, according to The Furniture Recycling Group, Wembley Stadium could be filled five times with the 7.5 million mattresses that are discarded in the UK every year.

While mattress recycling is relatively labour-intensive, more and more facilities capable of doing this work are springing up around the UK. These facilities will break down your mattress into its recyclable components – springs can then be melted down and remade into new metal products, while synthetic layers such as foam can either be used to make carpet underlay or else can be sent to a plant where the waste can at least be converted into energy.

Aside from taking your old mattress to your nearest recycling centre yourself, the best way to ensure your mattress is recycled is to pay for it to be collected. But whether you use the local council, the company delivering your new mattress or a specialist mattress removal company, make sure it is clearly stated that the mattress will be recycled. Otherwise, it’s probably best to assume that it won’t be.

Can you pay a company to pick up a mattress?

Four in ten Which? members disposed of their last mattress by having the company delivering their replacement mattress collect it, according to our November 2017 survey of 902 respondents.

That’s perhaps not surprising given the number of major high-street retailers now offering this service. Argos and Ikea, for example, both offer to collect and recycle your old mattress for a fee of £20 when you buy a new mattress from them. John Lewis offers a similar service, charging new mattress customers a fee of £29.95 to responsibly dispose of their old mattress.

Bed-in-a-box mattress brands such as Casper and Emma also offer an old mattress collection service for customers.

But getting the retailer to collect your old mattress when they deliver the new one is only convenient if you’re sure that the new mattress is the one for you. Otherwise you’ll be left without a bed at all if you later decide to return it. If you’re in any doubt, specialist mattress companies such as Collect Your Old Bed can pick up and dispose of your old mattress at a time of your choosing. But it’s always worth making sure the company actually recycles the mattress. We’d also recommend checking how much your local council charge before paying for one of these services, or else you risk paying over the odds.

See our list of thebest mattress retailersfor more information.

Can you donate a mattress?

If your mattress is still in good condition, you should consider donating it to charity or giving it away for free. That way you can help someone in need as well as ensuring that it doesn’t end up in landfill.

Organisations such as British Heart Foundation and British Red Cross will resell your mattress and put the proceeds towards a good cause. Other organisations, such as Furniture Donation Network, directly give your mattress to someone in need. Several other charities also accept mattress donations, so if there is a cause you particularly want to support, it’s worth contacting the charity directly.

As a general rule, these organisations will collect your mattress free of charge, but they may request you send images first to prove that it is of acceptable quality. Any organisation accepting a mattress donation will expect it to be fit for use, clean and have a fire label intact.

Another way to ensure your mattress stays out of landfill sites is to use a non-profit initiative such as Freecycle, which will put you in touch with someone in the local area looking for a free second-hand mattress.

Are there any other ways to dispose of a mattress?

There are several other ways to get rid of a mattress, but we wouldn’t recommend most of them.

Although 1% of Which? members told us they disposed of their last mattress by burning it, we don’t advise it. Not only is a mattress fire hard to control, but the fumes released by the fire could also be damaging to both you and the environment.

If you happen to be renting a skip and don’t mind your mattress contributing to a worsening landfill problem, then you can get rid of your old mattress using a skip.

But you should never dispose of your mattress by putting it in someone else’s skip or, worse yet, simply abandoning it on the side of the road. As well as both being anti-social and environmentally harmful, fly tipping is illegal and can result in a large fine.

Some of my clients think that having your trees removed from your garden is a part of the problem, but responsible companies like The Tree Firm actually contribute to charities to help plant trees and also recycle the wood chippings that they generate when cutting down unwanted trees. Dying or dead trees can be hazardous so they are likely to do more good being cut down in a safe manner and then can be recycled into paper or building materials.

Where to Recycle Your Mattress

The Mattress Recycling Council estimates that Americans dispose of 20 million mattresses and box springs every year and that the vast majority end up in landfills or incinerators. They contribute 450 million pounds of waste, and fill more than 100 million cubic feet of landfill space every year. This Mattress Recycling Guide from PlushBeds, will help you to avoid the landfills, by addressing a common question, “Where to Recycle Your Mattress.” You might also consider a latex mattress, with a major plus being that they are 98% biodegradable!

The problem with mattresses in landfills:

  • They are bulky and occupy a lot of landfill space.
  • Coils from innerspring mattresses get tangled in the equipment, that is used to compact and maneuver waste, in the landfills.
  • Once in landfills, mattresses become breeding grounds for insects, rodents and bacteria that quickly become a public health risk.

The good news is that there are options for you to consider, that do not involve sending your old mattress to a landfill. They include the basics of environmental stewardship:

Below you will learn about a variety of tools that you can use, to keep your old mattress out of local landfills. Also included is a state by state list of companies in the United States and Canada, that recycle mattresses.

After all, the easier it is to recycle your mattresses, the more likely people are to do it. Our goal is to make the process as simple as possible for you.

Why Recycle Your Old Mattress?

The decision to recycle anything is often one that is either motivated by deep personal beliefs or for financial reasons. The same applies when it comes to recycling mattresses.

Personal Reasons For Recycling Your Old Mattress

Those who recycle mattresses for personal reasons are convinced it is the right choice to make for the planet. The fact that landfills are overburdened by mattresses, is well documented across the country. Furthermore, recycling doesn’t only keep old mattresses out of landfills. It also creates an opportunity to give them new life, by breaking down the materials in each mattress that are reusable. Lastly, recycling your old mattress sets a good example for your children and future generations.

Financial Reasons For Recycling Your Old Mattress

Many communities, throughout the country, charge fees to dump your old mattress in local landfills. The fees are an attempt to not only discourage people from sending their mattresses to landfills, but also an effort to force people to consider recycling options, before dumping in landfills. Financial incentives have proven successful overall.

What Parts of a Mattress are Recyclable?

Most mattresses are highly recyclable. Current estimates show that roughly 90% of innerspring mattresses and box springs are recyclable. They include the following parts:

  • Steel springs (which you may consider selling for scrap metal)
  • Foam
  • Fibers or fabric, both natural and man-made
  • Wood

Each of these materials can be given new life through the recycling process.

  • Melt the steel and reshape it into something useful
  • Chip the wood for mulch or burn it for warmth
  • Use foams and fibers from the mattress to cushion pet beds or to make seat cushions

The problem is, mattresses are bulky and difficult to break down. The average person lacks the tools, time, patience, or talent to do the recycling. This is why there is such a need for recycling centers, to make the recycling process as simple as possible.

Alternatives to Recycling

There are reasonable alternatives to consider, if you’re not interested in recycling your mattress:

  1. Use your old mattress as a guest bed
  2. Donate your old mattress to charity or those in need of a mattress
  3. Sell your old mattress

The guest bed option is only available to those who have the space and inclination to do so, but it does keep the mattress out of a landfill that much longer.

There are also many charity organizations to consider when donating mattresses, including:

  • Goodwill
  • Salvation Army
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Furniture Banks
  • Homeless shelters in your community
  • Domestic violence shelters
  • Churches (they may not need the mattresses, but may know of members who do)

You may also choose to list your mattress for sale on Craigslist, in local papers, or in local buy/sell trade groups through Facebook. It isn’t that difficult to find a new home for your mattress, if it is in decent condition.

Where to Recycle Your Mattress:

Our goal is to make your decision to reduce, reuse, or recycle your mattress, as simple as possible. This list of mattress recycling companies, listed by state, within the USA and in Canada, will help.

Recycling

Our environment is precious

Did you know that in the UK alone, an incredible 8 million mattresses are disposed of every year?! The sad fact is that the majority of these mattresses are sent to landfill. It’s certainly not difficult to imagine the significant impact this has on our environment.

We want to make a difference

Thankfully, there is a solution – and we are incredibly proud to be part of it.

So how are mattresses recycled?

Working to reduce the numbers of mattresses sent to landfill, mattress components are separated out individually. These are then distributed to industries that can benefit from these raw materials.

Whether it’s the steel used within the mattress springs, or the comfort fillings such as wool and cotton – components are re-processed by all sorts of different manufacturers. From insulation for homes to materials used in cars, a recycled mattress can be used in so many ways!

Remarkably, by choosing to recycle, 100% of your old mattress can avoid landfill!

Let’s get recycling!

It’s simple – we want to help to prevent mattresses being sent to landfill. And we believe that recycling should be easy.

You can recycle your old mattress when you purchase a new one – for only£24.99!

Simply choose any of our mattresses and select "recycle my old mattress" when you get to the checkout.

All you need to do then is have your old mattress ready at the time of your delivery, without any bedding. When your lovely new mattress arrives, our delivery drivers will collect your old mattress to be recycled!

An all-in-one delivery and recycling solution – it really is that simple.

Great for you, great for our environment

Our recycling option forms part of our ever-growing commitment to improve our services for our customers. We’d like to thank every single one of our customers who have chosen to recycle with us so far.

Together with your help, we can support mattress recycling in the UK to ensure that the number of mattresses sent to landfill every year continues to be reduced – and our environment safeguarded for generations to come.
