Events & Notices

Mattress Collection

IMPORTANT - Currently, all mattresses are being collected by East Waste and there is no charge for this service. Please contact East Waste directly for all bookings www.eastwaste.com.au, east@eastwaste.com or 8347 5170. You can receive 1 free collection plus one additional collection but would need to then be booked in as part of your hard rubbish collection. Please contact East Waste to discuss your options. As a part of the 'Clean Campbelltown' initiative Campbelltown City Council, in partnership with Sofacycle, offers a mattress collection to its residents. All size mattresses will be collected and completely recycled, keeping thousands of tonnes of waste out of landfill each year. If you only wish to dispose of *one mattress, you can access one free mattress collection each financial year that is separate to your at-call hard waste collection. *One mattress means just one mattress. It does not mean one mattress and one base. The mattress will be collected at no charge but you will be charged $10 for the base. If you have already taken advantage of your one free mattress collection and your one free at call collection service, you can still arrange to have another mattress collected at a cost of $10 for the first item and $5 for each additional item. For example, two mattresses will be $15. You will need to provide payment upon collection. PLEASE NOTE: It is important to note that if you book in for your one free collection, for example, one mattress through East Waste but you put out three mattresses you will be charged for the amount that you have left out. One mattress may be free, however, you will be charged for the other two. How do I organise a booking? To make a booking call East Waste on 8347 5170, visit online at www.eastwaste.com.au or email east@eastwaste.com. East Waste will arrange for your mattress to be collected by another contractor and properly recycled. When will my mattress be collected? Collections will take place each week from Monday (including public holidays). Due to a current high demand the collection may not be completed until the end of each week so your patience is appreciated. Please leave the items visible for collection once you have booked in. If you wish to cancel your collection, please contact East Waste to have your collection removed from the booking list for that week. Items for collection must be placed within your property but visible from the road and not placed on the footpath or verge by 7.00am on the Monday morning of the week of collection. The items can be left in the driveway, under a carport or verandah but must be visible from the road. What happens to my collected mattress? Sofacycle arranges the recycling of 90% of the mattress and base materials. The springs and metal components are collected by a local metal recycler, and the underlay and wool are sent interstate to become insulation batts and underlay for carpets. The wood is either broken up for sale as kindle or is kept intact and a local manufacturer of pallets makes use of it. Mattress covers are used by a local company to produce punching bags and any latex components are made into dog beds by a local small business with part proceeds for sale going to the RSPCA.
