Disposing of an old mattress can be stressful for Abbotsford residents. But did you know that recycling one can be convenient? Ever since Metro Vancouver increased tipping fees for mattresses dumped at local landfills, it has been easier for people to recycle them at a local facility instead.
Companies like ours, Canadian Mattress Recycling, make recycling old mattresses easier by offering residential pickup services to Abbotsford.
Booking with us means that we’ll take care of removing those mattresses for you, from your home.
When we take your old mattress, it goes to our Annacis Island, Delta recycling facility. Your mattress will be stripped down and its parts will be salvaged for local manufacturers to use. Sometimes, materials like fabric, cotton, and foam, are repurposed by charities, organizations, and schools. Sometimes they are turned into new cushions and pet beds at local animal shelters.
Reduce Illegal Dumping
Recycling your mattress is one way of reducing illegally dumped mattresses. Mattresses dumped on the side of streets, lawns, or public property is a health and safety concern. It affects local wildlife and can contaminate our water streams. Therefore, choosing to recycle yours protects our natural environment and makes cities like Abbotsford a cleaner, safer place.
