Mattress and Couch/Suite of Furniture Amnesty

Funded by the Department of Communications, Climate Action and the Environment Anti-Dumping Initiative for 2019, the Mattress and Sofa Amnesty addresses the all-too-familiar sight of mattresses and sofas dumped on our roadsides by offering the public a free opportunity to recycle these unwanted items.

“We understand that the proper disposal of these bulky waste items can be difficult for householders to deal with as they cannot be disposed of through the normal refuse disposal services” said Councillor Sheehan “The mattress and sofa amnesty gives householders an opportunity to leave old mattresses or an unwanted suite into their local household recycling centres free of charge and this will help eliminate the scourge of illegal dumping of these items on our roadsides and rural locations” he added.

Householders are reminded that only clean dry mattresses should be brought to the appropriate household recycling centres at the dates and times listed below. A maximum of 3 mattresses and 1 suite of furniture will be accepted per vehicle on each day.

Commercial waste will not be accepted. All mattresses will be recycled,
