    Alternative Ways To Dispose Of An Old Mattress

    When looking at purchasing a brand spanking new bed a lot of people are unsure of what to do with their old mattress. After all it is a rather large object and not something you can easily dispose of! Luckily, we’re dab hands when it comes to all things bed and sleep related. Therefore, here a few suggestions as to what you can do with your old mattress. However, before you read on, our number one tip in regards to disposing of your old bed is not to do so until your new one has arrived!

    Recycle With Us At Beds On Legs

    Here at Beds On Legs, we’re proud to offer a mattress recycling service. Indeed, a lot of people don’t even know that it is possible to recycle mattresses. Indeed, 167,000 mattresses end up in landfill every year. Therefore choosing to recycle is a sustainable solution. Mattress components can be recycled in a number of ways. Metal is melted down and reused whilst internal fillings can be sent out to waste energy plants. The service costs £40.00 and can be done at the same time as delivering your new mattress. Therefore recycling is also a convenient choice.

    Donate To Charity

    If your old bed is still in good condition then you might want to consider donating it to charity. For example, you may have a mattress in a spare bedroom that has hardly been used. Or perhaps you have a mattress that is still in good condition but you’re upgrading its size. One thing you should check before donating your old mattress to charity is that it still has a current fire label attached to it. However, remember if you wouldn’t sleep on it yourself then don’t expect someone else to. Indeed charities are always grateful for donations. However, if it isn’t fit for purpose then it costs the charity to dispose of it.

    Contact Your Local Authority

    If none of the above are suitable for you then you can also contact your local authority. Local authorities offer waste disposal service for bulky items and sometimes these services are free. However, each authority operates independently so you will need to contact them directly. If you are unsure of who your local authority is you can check here.
