Mattresses Recycling mattresses not only saves limited landfill space, it also saves resources. Central Coast Council staff are currently retrieving mattresses from landfill daily, that have been delivered to either the Buttonderry or Woy Woy Waste Management Facilities. Mattresses are then stripped to acquire, reuse and recycle the metal components which are sent to our contractors for recycling into various new products. There is a cost involved to dispose of a mattress at any one of Council’s Waste Facilities. Mattresses can also be collected for free through the kerbside collection service available to most households.
