A good night’s sleep is essential in Bradford, but you need a comfy bed to get a good forty winks. An old, sagging, and uncomfortable mattress will need throwing away to ensure this. Most last for around ten years before they start to lose their shape, but disposal is tricky due to their size. 

Arrange mattress collection in Bradford with Divert to get rid of your old one easily. With more than 555,000 people living and sleeping across the Bradford district, even though most couples may share, it still means many mattresses are being replaced daily. Responsible disposal is vital to avoid them ending up in landfill.

We collect all shapes and sizes of mattresses in any condition from anywhere in Bradford. This includes single, double, queen, and king-size mattresses, as well as those from frame, bunk, and sleigh beds.

How mattress collection works in Bradford

Simply let us know the size and number of mattresses you need to get rid of, where from, and when for a free quote. Then we can book a time and date for mattress removal in Bradford. One of our purple vans and a couple of our professional team will come out to collect it.

They’ll lift, carry, and load the mattress for effortless removal (for you). Then it’ll be transported to a nearby waste transfer station in Bradford. The mattress will be checked and sent for donation, recycling, or incineration – depending on its condition and type. Either way, it’ll avoid going to landfill and be disposed of responsibly.

Most mattresses are recycled. They’re broken down, parts separated and then recycled alongside similar materials. For example, any metal springs will be sent for recycling with other metals – usually melted down and turned into new metal products. Foam from the mattress filling can be converted into carpet padding.

  • British Heart Foundation – free collection is available for bulky items including mattresses. These are sold in Bradford’s BHF furniture and electrical store.
  • Keighley Furniture Project – old mattresses may be collected for free from households in the Keighley and Skipton area and then reused, upcycled, and recycled.

Great company to work with
Mrs C A Knight

Great company to work with, very professional and a competitive price. Very good service and (Marcus) is always helpful and comes back to you straight away to any questions. We are a small nursery school and just have nappy bins emptied but I would recommend Divert and will also use their other services after reading other positive reviews
