A saggy, unsupportive mattress that leaves you aching is no good. It means you’ll wake up grumpy, walking through York’s historic streets in pain and a huff. Mattresses last between seven to 10 years (longer depending on the material and care) but when they reach the end of their life you need to dispose of them responsibly.
More than 150,000 people live in York and while plenty share a bed and mattress with a partner, it still adds up to a lot of mattresses. Plus, over 350 hotels and B&Bs across the city need to replace old and soiled mattresses, as does York Hospital with its more than 700 beds. We collect all types and sizes of mattresses in York.

How mattress removal works in York
Let us know the type and size of mattress you’re getting rid of, where you are in York, and when you want it removed. We’ll provide a free no obligation quote for mattress collection in York. Then we’ll book your removal at an agreed time and date if you wish to proceed.
One of our purple Divert trucks will come out to your York home or business. Two of our team then move your old mattress and load it into the vehicle, so you don’t have to lift a finger. They’ll transport it to a local recycling centre in York for reuse or recycling.
If the mattress is still in a usable condition, it may be donated to a charity or organisation that can use it in York. However, with any old mattresses at the end of their life, they’re separated into individual materials, such as metal springs and foam. These are recycled separately.
The metal may be melted down and used to create new metal products, while foam can be recycled into carpet padding. We aim to avoid sending any mattresses to landfill and reuse as much as possible to protect the local York environment.

City of York Council mattress collection
