Mattress Amnesty: A Resounding Success for Kerry County Council
In a heartwarming display of community engagement and environmental responsibility, we recently had the privilege of organizing and operating the latest Mattress Amnesty event on behalf of Kerry County Council. This remarkable initiative garnered widespread support and participation from the residents of Kerry, resulting in the collection of an impressive 450 mattresses.
The resounding success of this event not only reflects the dedication of our community but also exemplifies the commitment of Kerry County Council towards sustainable waste management and recycling practices.
The Mattress Amnesty event, a collaborative endeavor between the community and Kerry County Council, serves as a testament to the positive impact that can be achieved when we unite for a common cause, making Kerry a shining beacon of sustainability in Ireland.
The concept of a “Mattress Amnesty” might sound intriguing to some, so let’s delve deeper into what this event entails. Essentially, a Mattress Amnesty is a community-driven effort to encourage responsible mattress disposal.
It provides an opportunity for residents to dispose of their old mattresses in an eco-friendly manner, diverting them from landfills and incinerators, which can be detrimental to the environment. Instead, these mattresses are processed in a way that ensures 95% of their materials can be repurposed in the production of new mattresses.

This environmentally conscious initiative aligns perfectly with Kerry County Council’s mission to reduce waste and promote sustainable living practices. By participating in the Mattress Amnesty event, the council aims to create awareness about the importance of responsible waste disposal while also contributing to a circular economy where resources are reused and recycled whenever possible.
For those eager to join this noble cause, there are two convenient options available. Firstly, if you have an old mattress that you’d like to recycle, you can simply bring it to our Amenity Centre located in The Kerries, Tralee. The recycling fee is affordable, with single mattresses costing €15 and double mattresses priced at €20. Not only will you be doing your part for the environment, but you’ll also be supporting a sustainable approach to mattress disposal.

However, we understand that not everyone can easily transport their mattresses to our Amenity Centre. That’s why we offer an alternative solution to make the process as hassle-free as possible. Our van collection service ensures that your old mattress is picked up from your location, sparing you the effort of transporting it yourself. This convenient service streamlines the recycling process, making it accessible to all residents of Kerry County.
