Maitland mattress muster next month
Residents will have the opportunity to dispose of unwanted mattresses for free next month, with Maitland City Council holding another mattress muster.
Each household will be able to recycle up to four mattresses, including cot mattresses, innerspring mattresses and ensemble bases. A mattress with a base will be counted as two items.
This will be the 11th muster held since 2014. Over 6000 mattresses have been received in that time.
In the last two years, more than 1800 vehicles have passed through the Council Depot’s gates.
“By participating in this mattress muster you will ensure that components of your old mattresses are recycled instead of being disposed of to landfill,” Council’s Development and Environment manager David Simm said.
“This is an opportunity for residents to do their bit for the environment by simply recycling something they might not use anymore, all free of charge.”
The muster will held on Saturday, November 10, from 8:30am to 12pm at the Council Depot Carpark on Metford Road in East Maitland.
Proof of residence in the Maitland local government area will be required.
