MattressesYou can drop old mattresses and ensembles off at Soft Landing on John Cory Circuit from 7.30am to 3.30pm Monday to Friday (closed public holidays) to have them recycled for a fee.

Mattress recycling facility

The ACT mattress recycling facility, run by Soft Landing, recycles up to 90% of mattress components. An average mattress contains:

  • 12.5kg of steel
  • 4kg of foam
  • 12kg for a wood base.

All parts can be separated for recycling to divert thousands of tonnes of waste from landfill each year.
