Learn more about Mattress Disposal in Twickenham
Of course, there are also other options like utilising the local authorities bulky waste collection services for your mattress disposal requirements, however this may not be ideal if you are time restricted as it may take a while to get an appointment. You could also transport it to your local tip in Twickenham using your own vehicle if the mattress fits, though again this may not be ideal if you do not have the time, the vehicle or the strength to do so. Also, by taking it to the tip, you may be reducing the chance of the mattress being recycled, in comparison to us at Wayst who recycle 90% of the material we collect from our clients. If your mattress is in good condition, you just no longer have a need for it, you could also donate it to a charity, church or shelter where they could find good use for it.
Twickenham appears to need help on their number of recycled mattresses, with only around 12,000 mattresses being recycled each year out of the approximate 90,000 that are being disposed of. This number needs to rise dramatically, and there is no reason that it cannot as most, if not all, mattresses are made up of a variety of materials like springs and foam, which can all be recycled once the mattress has been broken down into parts. Mattresses can cause severe damage to our environment if they are dumped at landfill sites, as they can contaminate the soil and water as they decompose, which can take decades, not to mention that due to their size they take up a lot of space.
