How to dispose of mattresses

Contact the Commercial Waste team on 020 7641 6180 to arrange a bulky waste collection.

In order to prevent the spread of bed bugs please:

  • seal any mattresses or box springs for disposal in a large plastic bag before putting it out for collection.

These large plastic bags normally come as packaging around a new mattress which you can reuse to wrap the old one.  Alternatively you can buy them at department stores, home improvement stores,  moving supply centers and online retailers.

For more information, please also see bulky waste and duvets and pillows.
