Learn more about Mattress Disposal in East London
If you want to dispose of your mattress in the most environmentally friendly ways, there are a number of options for East London residents. Private waste removal companies as well as bulky waste collections operated by the borough councils are both cost efficient options for taking care of your mattress disposal needs.
Of the 206,000 mattresses disposed of in East London last year, only 26,000 of them ended up recycled or reused, a shocking 12% in total. As experts in waste management protocol, we know that mattresses take up to 10 years to break down in a landfill setting. Over time the flame-retardant coating on the mattress is worn away, releasing a toxic chemical and turning the mattress into a significant fire hazard. Our recycling rate of over 90% means that organising a mattress removal through Wayst is one of the few ways to guarantee that your mattress will not end up on in a landfill or illegally fly-tipped.
