Mattresses and soft furnishings

Every year in Australia, 1.25 million mattresses end up in landfill – but this can be avoided because up to 90% of mattress components can be recycled. You can help by bringing your unwanted mattresses to the Albury Waste Management Centre. Charges apply.

Recyclable materials in mattresses include:

  • Steel springs are sent to scrap metal merchants for melting into new products
  • Foam from inside the mattress can be recycled for carpet underlay
  • Timber and husk: The fibrous husk is used in the manufacture of animal bedding, weed matting and mulch
  • Felt pad and fabric is used to make boxing bags
