We are often asked the question…
An individual, how do I recyle my mattress?
An end-of-life mattress recycling industry has been established in France since May 2013 by Eco-Mobilier. Do you remember the words “eco-participation” when you buy your mattress? This eco-participation is sent to Eco-mobilier so that they can handle the collection and treatment of old and used mattresses.
To recylce your mattress, you just need to take it to the recycling centre or call the assistance and transport for bulky material of your city/region. Your worn out mattress will be recycled and sent to a certified treatment center. There are 6 qualified treatment centres in France, of which Secondly owns 2.
