How mattress collection works in Harrogate

Start by applying for a free quote based on the type and number of mattresses you need collecting, where from, and when. We’ll book a collection time and date that suits your schedule if you’re happy with the price. Then on the day one of our purple vans and a couple of our professional team will come out.

Two of our team will lift, move, and load your old mattress into the van. They’ll then drive it to a nearby waste transfer station in North Yorkshire where it’ll be checked and sent for disposal. Any in a usable condition may be donated to a local charity in Harrogate, while others are recycled or incinerated.

All mattresses collected in Harrogate are diverted away from landfill. Those that are recycled get broken down into individual materials that are then recycled separately. For example, metal springs are taken out and sent for metal recycling where they’re melted down to create new metal products. Foam from the filling is converted into carpet padding.

Local recycling centres in Harrogate

Harrogate residents can dispose of mattresses for free at two main household waste recycling centres (HWRCs) – Harrogate HWRC and West Harrogate HWRC. You’ll need to register for a vehicle pass if you bring your old mattress in a commercial or commercial-like vehicle (such as a van, pickup, flatbed, or land rover with a cargo area).

Businesses (including landlords) can only take mattresses that class as commercial waste to West Harrogate HWRC. You must be a licensed waste carrier and charges apply to dispose of a mattress.

You can also use the North Yorkshire Council bulky waste collection service to get rid of a mattress from a Harrogate household. A maximum of two bulky items can be collected at once – a mattress, bed, base, and headboard each count as one individual item. Current charges are £50 for the removal of two bulky items, and you must place them near the boundary of your property.

Both Harrogate and West Harrogate HWRCs are open six days a week (closed on Wednesdays). Also shut on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Year’s Day.
