Learn more about Mattress Disposal in North London
Most borough councils in North London offer their residents a mattress disposal service through their bulky waste collection services, however this is not always the most convenient option as turnaround times are not as quick and the time slot allocations are often inflexible and residents need to be at home when mattresses are collected.
While the company you bought your new mattress from may be able to collect your old mattress for free, this may not be the most sustainable option, as recycling is not guaranteed. Several charity organisations in North London carry out mattress disposal services if your mattress is reusable for free but may not be able to collect at a suitable time for your convenience.
Although mattresses can be fully recycled, most of them unfortunately get dumped in landfills. Not only do mattresses take up large spaces, but they take decades to fully break down, while potentially releasing toxic gases into the air.
