Mattress Recycling NZ Does Anybody Do It ????

It’s common knowledge that recycling is only for plastics and other man-made materials and that finding companies that do mattress recycling in NZ is a bit difficult. In New Zealand, the recycling of mattresses began as early as 2006. However, not many companies took to the task and only those who manufacture the mattresses themselves take their own used products back from their customers as part of their companies’ waste control program. In some eco drop centers in other cities, they also take these items but depending on their condition. Today, the number of companies that accept used mattresses are very few, so, unfortunately, most of these items that we have used for 8 to 10 years eventually land in landfills.

At the landfills, different types of waste are thrown and these are the waste that are of no use or cannot be recycled. So imagine your large mattresses going into the dump, it will take years before its inorganic materials will break down such as plastic, foam and metals. And even if its metals are recyclable, no one will be picking them out from the landfills thus making the soil there infertile due to contamination, unstable and useless. This is why mattress recycling in Christchurch NZ should always be part of our city’s waste management program.

Selling it.

Check your mattress and see yourself as someone who’s looking for a second-hand item such as a mattress. Does it have any damage? Does it look clean and not stained? Is it free from bed bugs? Or, does it smell musky like your pet? Simply, your mattress should be in perfect condition if you want people to buy it because most likely no one would buy dirty, damaged, or insect-infested furniture. As long as your mattress is still in perfect condition, you can post its picture on ad websites and put some description with it people will want to know who has used it including the age of the mattress.
