Make a difference

Each year in Australia, almost a million mattresses are sent to landfill. By recycling mattresses these large waste items can be diverted from landfill and their components, such as wood, foam and springs recycled into a number of products

Softlanding Difference
Why is a mattress going to the tip (landfill) a bad thing?

The materials in a mattress can take a long time to break down, and can cause problems in landfill. Some of the materials can be used to make other things, and if we throw them in landfill they can’t be reused.

To recycle your old mattress you have two options:

1. If your mattress was purchased from a retailer that participates in the Recycle My Mattress program, they will collect your old mattress for free when you purchase your new mattress from them. Easy!

2. Or if you just need an old mattress collected you can pay a small fee for approved mattress recycler Soft Landing to collect it from you.

A mattress purchase is a very personal thing. If you know exactly what type of mattress, or what brand, then head over to our participating retailers search and select one near you. Our members also sell online if that’s your preference.

If you don’t know what kind of mattress, then visit one of our participating retailers and they will assist you in selecting the type of mattress for you.

You can also visit our Facebook and Instagram pages for posts on our members, on the manufacture of mattresses, the materials used and on the recycling process.
