Learn more about Mattress Disposal in Croydon
For an immediate option, some mattress retailers offer collections for old mattresses after they deliver your new one. This is a very convenient option, although unless explicitly informed otherwise, you cannot guarantee that the old mattress is not heading straight for a landfill site.
Alternatively, if you have a vehicle that is big enough to carry a mattress, you could choose to transport it yourself to one of the recycling centres in the Croydon area. Carrying out a mattress disposal at these facilities is free for Croydon residents, however not every recycling centre is equipped to deal with mattress recycling and may ask for an additional fee. The main centres in Croydon are the Factory Lane, Fishers Farm and Purley Oaks recycling centres. In addition to these recycling centres, you could arrange a bulky item collection from the borough council. This is a service that is also only available for Croydon residents and will cost around £30 for 1-4 items.
Collections arranged through the local authority are sometimes cancelled due to high demand and wait times for the service can span a few weeks in particularly busy times.
