years - mattresses take up to a century to decompose.

Mattresses are often sent to landfill, even though Mattresses are up to 90% recyclable, containing a number of recoverable components. Recently, Australia has made strides in diverting mattresses from landfill with the introduction of a product stewardship scheme in 2016 aimed at the recovery of resources used in the production of mattresses. Mattresses should not be sent to landfill and there will be a number of options available to you, no matter where you are in Australia.

What are Mattresses made of?

Most mattresses are made up of textiles like cotton, foam, timber and steel. These components individually are recyclable and utilised in the production of common goods. Recovered Timber is processed into woodchips and used in the manufacture of various household products. Springs are recovered and melted down where they are used in the manufacture of property, vehicles and appliances. Foam and Textiles are recycled and used as carpet underlay.

Mattresses should be directed to the nearest recycling facility, if you are unsure how to recycle your mattress please contact us. Other mattresses can be cleaned and donated to charities to provide those less-fortunate with bedding. As mattresses are built for longevity, the cost of sending mattresses to landfill is over 100 years to decompose while some components may take an additional decade.
