Choose the stress-free convenient way to dispose of your tired old mattresses & bedframes
Moving house or need some extra space? Is your old bed or mattress past its use by date and in need of disposal? It can be stressfully challenging to dispose of bulky items like these especially when your new bed is due for delivery. Where do you put your 30-year-old bed in the meantime?
Disposing of your mattress doesn't have to be costly either. Local London borough councils may charge up to £60 for collection and disposal, but opting for a private service with Rubbish Taxi can save you money. We don't just take away your old bed and mattress, we recycle it using our special bed and mattress disposal service.
Save the Environment
A mattress is made up of several components that can be reused as opposed to dumped in a landfill. With over 167,000 tonnes of mattresses sent to UK landfills each year, our customers feel better knowing they will make a positive difference to the environment instead.
Let’s take a look at the individual components.
Wooden Bed Frame & Slats
Wood has many after life uses. Most commonly it can be used as a biofuel in the same way we use logs. Alternatively, wood can be chipped or shredded to create animal bedding. Wood disposal can be reused in a beneficial way for both residents and businesses.
Inner Mattress Springs & Box Springs
Steel wire can easily be melted down and recycled. Its continuous recycling properties mean it can be recycled infinitely without losing its stability and performance.
Mattress Fabric and Fibers
Animal down and plant fibers such as cotton and wool fibers found in mattresses can be recycled into many new uses. Foam padding can be used in waste-to-energy plants or cleaned before use as underlays for industrial carpets. Polyester filling can be reprocessed for use in the filling of pet cushions.
