Where possible, mattresses are reconditioned or pulled apart for recycling. Springs that are removed are recycled as scrap metal, foam is recycled and turned into carpet underlay and timber recovered can either be sent to non-profit community organisations for use in hobby projects or used in the production of biofuels.
Mattresses include sponge, foam, latex, inner spring or ensembles. Mattress recycling require different handling methods to ordinary waste to ensure safe disposal and in some instances can be recycled.
Will SUEZ accept my mattresses?
Mattresses and ensemble bases are accepted for drop-off at some SUEZ facilities located in Metropolitan Sydney. For further information regarding these facilities please call 1300 651 116 or view our Waste Charges & Services Brochure below.
