Bed Collect is an eco-friendly bed recycling business based in Melbourne and is 100% Australian owned. We collect mattresses and bases from both domestic and commercial clients within 30km of the Melbourne CBD and manufacture and deliver refurbished beds to charities. We have been operating since 2012 and since then, have diverted more than 50,000 beds away from landfill, recycled more than 80% of all components from mattresses and bases collected and provided more than 10,000 beds to those in need.
Every year, Australians send more than 1 million mattresses to landfill. That means more than 10,000 tonnes of steel springs from mattresses, for example, are left to rust and rot in the ground for over 100 years! We are dedicated to attacking this environmental issue head on and even though we are just a small business, we can make an impact. On average every year, we recycle more than 150 tonnes of steel and more than 50 tonnes of foam/ticking from mattresses alone.
And we are not only committed to helping the environment but also helping those in need. As such, any steel springs that can be salvaged from mattresses we collect will be sent across to our manufacturing plant to be used in refurbished mattresses for charitable organisations. Since start of operations, we have provided more than 10,000 high quality refurbished beds to charities like St Vincent de Paul Society, The Salvation Army and Haven Home Safe.
Our products and services can help you reduce both your waste fees and environmental footprint, whilst staying within your budget and moving toward sustainability.
