Why are Proper Mattress Collection Services Important?

Disposing of a bed or mattress improperly can have significant environmental and health consequences. When a mattress or bed is discarded, it is often taken to a landfill, where it can take up to 20 years to decompose.

Additionally, mattresses and beds tend to take up a lot of space, which means that they can quickly fill up landfills, resulting in more significant environmental impacts.

How not to dispose of a mattress

Improper disposal of mattresses and beds can also lead to a health hazard. Mattresses, in particular, can become a breeding ground for dust mites, bacteria, and mould. When discarded in improper ways, such as dumping in back gardens, they can become breeding places for vermin and pests, such as bedbugs which threaten public health.

Keeping the Environment Safe

Once you hire a professional junk removal service to get rid of your mattress, you can rest easy knowing that your mattress will be disposed of in an environmentally friendly way. Recycling your mattress is crucial as it is made of materials that are not biodegradable.

The experts will make sure to recycle or dispose of these materials in an eco-friendly manner, whether it’s a memory foam mattress or contains mattress springs. With professional disposal services, you can make a significant contribution to keeping the environment safe and clean.

Saving Time and Effort

Disposing of waste on your own can be difficult and time-consuming. From making multiple trips to landfills to knowing how to properly dispose of bulky items safely, it can prove to be a daunting task.

However, when you work with professional junk removal services, our team will make the whole process seamless. You have to make an appointment, and then our team will arrive promptly to pick up your mattress. Thus, you save both time and effort.

Freeing Up Space

If you hold onto your old mattress instead of getting it disposed of, you are essentially creating clutter and taking up precious storage space.

As your home may already be overcrowded with furniture, it is a great idea to dispose of the old mattress so that you can free up storage space. With professional junk removal services, you can save your living space from clutter by getting rid of your old mattresses quickly and efficiently.

Ensuring Safe Disposal

When you try to get rid of a mattress on your own, you expose yourself to the dangers of improper disposal methods. Transporting an old mattress can be cumbersome, and if it is not done correctly, it can result in injury.

However, with our professional rubbish removal service, you have peace of mind knowing that our experts will follow safe and proper disposal methods.

Will the Plymouth City Council Collect my Unwanted Mattress?

Using their bulky waste collection service, you can always get a quote from Plymouth Local Council’s website to see if they’re willing to take away your Mattress, which usually costs around £25-£50 for a small collection.

While the local council services can provide some level of assistance in removing bulky items such as mattresses, their service often leaves much to be desired. It is not uncommon for customers to face long waiting times, inflexible collection schedules, and limited assistance in terms of moving and lifting the items.

Furthermore, the cost can also be a concern, as most councils services may impose additional charges based on the size and weight of the item.

Benefits of mattress recycling with a private waste company

If you’re looking for a hassle-free collection, it is often best to opt for a private waste company to get rid of your mattress.

Not only do waste companies offer flexible collection schedules, but they also provide comprehensive services, including lifting and moving of items, which can save you a great deal of time and effort.

Moreover, private waste companies are committed to providing top-notch customer service and are generally more cost-effective, offering a more streamlined, efficient, and eco-friendly solution to your waste disposal needs. You can ask the local council to collect; it is up to you in the end!
