Mattress recycling

Waverley Council offers free mattress recycling for our residents as part of our clean-up collection service.  

Waverley Council residents can arrange two Your Call clean up collections in addition to the annual scheduled collection for your zone. Learn more about our clean up collection service or find the scheduled collection day for your zone. To book a Your Call Collection, call Customer Service on 9083 8000.

There is a limit of two single mattresses, or one queen size or larger mattress, per collection, and no additional bulky waste items may be included in the same collection.

Each year in Australia, around 1.25 million mattresses end up in landfill even though an average spring-based mattress contains 12.5kg of steel, 2kg of wood and 1.5kg of foam, all of which can be recycled or reused.

Your mattresses are picked up by our team and recycled by JLW Services through Veolia, council's waste processor. Spring-based mattresses can be disassembled with component parts recycled. Foam based mattresses cannot be recycled.
