Mattress recycling FAQs

How do I recycle my old mattress?

If you’re wondering how to dispose of a mattress, the real question you should ask is how to recycle a mattress! The answer is that it’s more simple than throwing your mattress away in the landfill (and usually cheaper too!). Instead of going to a landfill and adding to the waste, you can drop your mattress off at any of the designated Soft Landing mattress recycling locations. What’s even better, is that Soft Landing can come to you and take your old mattress away. You don’t even have to leave the house!

How much does it cost to recycle my old mattress?

The cost varies depending on how Soft Landing receives your mattress, and the location of the recycling centre. For example, It’s usually cheaper to drop your mattress off than it is for a mattress collection from your home. The amount of pieces you’re recycling can also influence the cost. Usually, a single mattress, bed frame or base counts as a single piece. To find out more about Soft Landing’s pricing, you can click here.

Is mattress recycling really worth it?

Yes. We can’t express enough how much of an impact mattress recycling has on sustainability. From a case study conducted by Climate Choices, 1.8 million mattresses find their way to landfills every year. To put that into perspective, a mattress with pocket springs can have up to 2000 springs. That’s potentially three billion six hundred million springs going to waste every year, not to mention the timber, husk, fabric and foam that’s also going to waste. So, yes, it’s definitely worth recycling your old mattress.

Can any mattress be recycled?

Soft Landing can recycle foam, latex and innerspring mattresses. If your mattress isn’t one of these listed, you can still contact your local recycling centre, landfill, or Soft Landing centre. They might be able to provide some additional information on how to best recycle your mattress or dispose of it in an eco-friendly way.

How your mattress is recycled

Steel springs

Once your mattress arrives at Soft Landing, they carefully remove steel springs for recycling. This process helps reduce the demand for new steel production and minimises waste.


The wooden components in your old mattress are recycled into mulch, further minimising waste and supporting responsible resource management.


Soft Landing repurpose the foam from your old mattress into carpet underlays, minimising the need for new raw materials.
