FREE mattress collection for residents

All residents have access to FREE on-call mattress collection.

Any size mattress and box springs will be collected and recycled.


How to book a mattress collection

To book a collection call our Waste Minimisation Officer on 9347 6002 or email waste@cambridge.wa.gov.au


When will your mattress be collected?

Mattresses will be collected weekly, on a Thursday.

Please have your mattress out on the verge by 6am in a location that is visible and easily accessible.


Like to know what happens to your old mattress?

Mattresses are taken to the Spider Waste mattress recycling plant in Bayswater where they are deconstructed and materials repurposed.

Usually metal components are sold as scrap and the foam turned into carpet underlay.

The timber and pocket springs are used to make dog beds and some of the materials are turned into mattress protectors (cleaned of course).

Your old mattress gets a whole new life!


The FREE mattress collection service is part of our Maximum Recovery Scheme and our ongoing commitment to reducing the amount of waste we send to landfill.
