Learn more about Mattress Disposal in Watford
Of the 40,000 mattresses disposed of in Watford a year, not even 5,000 of them are recycled and when you consider that when dumped at landfill sites, a mattress can take more than 10 years to break down, this is not sustainable. Mattresses take up a lot of space and are emitting greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere while they decompose. Mattress disposal done properly is imperative if we want to see the number of recycled mattresses increase to help protect our environment and with most mattresses being made from material that can be recycled, there is no reason why this cannot happen.
The majority of mattresses can consist of multiple different materials that when broken down can be recycled, which is why it is so important to dispose of your mattress properly. When a mattress is taken to a recycling centre, it will be dismantled so that the foam padding, metal springs and coconut fibres can be recycled for different products.
