Recycle mattresses for free in Clare with Council initiative

CLARE people looking to dispose of that most awkward of household items – the mattress – can spring into action next weekend.

Saturday, October 2, has been declared Mattress Amnesty Day, with Clare County Council giving householders the opportunity to recycle old mattresses for free.


Any old mattress that has been lurking about the house since being replaced on beds can be brought to the Central Waste Management Facility in Inagh between 8.30am and 1pm on that day.

Mattresses dumped illegally have been a scourge of the countryside and funding for this ‘amnesty’ was awarded by the Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications through the 2021 Anti-Dumping Initiative.

This initiative is aimed at householders, who are reminded that only clean and dry mattresses should be brought for recycling to the Central Waste Management Facility.

A maximum of five mattresses will be accepted per vehicle, on the day, and no commercial waste mattresses will be accepted.
