Over 300,000 mattresses are sent to landfill each year in Victoria. This is equivalent to over 5,700 per week.
Mattresses are made of valuable materials that are recyclable, this is wasted when they aren’t repurposed or disposed of correctly.
By recycling your mattresses correctly you:
- Help reduce the amount of raw materials extracted from the environment
- Help reduce air and water pollution as a result of the extraction and processing of raw materials
- Reduce landfill.
