If you’re in the market for a new mattress, it’s worth remembering that, for a nominal fee, many furniture and bedding stores offer to take away your old mattress for recycling when they drop off your new one – saving you the hassle of getting it out of the house.
At Harvey Norman, for instance, they recycle each part of your old mattress individually so that everything is correctly recycled. Each layer is stripped away to ensure there’s no mixing of materials.
