Recycling an old mattress

Into the van I needed to get rid of two old double-bed sized mattresses.  I’m currently sleeping on a king single futon bed (loving it) and the two double-bed mattresses were taking up expensive space in a storage lockup.

So I needed to remove them.

Hiring a van to take them to the local rubbish dump, and then paying dump fees started to look expensive.  Sure I could have dumped them on the side of the road, but that’s illegal…

So I looked into other options, and settled on Melbourne Mattress Recyclers.  Made a booking.  The guys showed up when they said they would, and it was cheaper than a van+dump fees.

Now I have more storage space.  Win-win 🙂
