South Dublin Community Mattress Recycling 2021 – starts now!
It takes approximately 52 standard mattresses to create a tonne of mattresses. They can be made from combinations of wool, cotton and coconut fibre or synthetic fillings, such as polyester and latex. Others have metal springs for that extra bounce! So, lots of materials to recover for recycling.
In October 2020, the Recycle IT team helped residents in Dublin recycle over 20 tonnes of mattresses which means they didn't end up in landfills or on bonfires at Halloween.
We were delighted with the results of our first-ever Mattress Recycling Initiative, so we decided to try again.
This year Recycle IT are offering a free mattress recycling initiative during the month of October and prior to Halloween. It's open to householders from today and runs over 4 weeks up to the end of October 2021.
You can simply drop off old household mattresses to Recycle IT in Dublin 22 at no cost. Arrive between 10 am and 1 pm, Monday – Friday and our team will be ready to help once you arrive!
