The Australian Bedding Stewardship Council (ABSC) was established to expand on the provisional product stewardship scheme originating in 2016. The ABSC is continuing the development and implementation of a whole of lifecycle product stewardship scheme for mattresses and bedding that is supported by the bedding industry.

The Product Stewardship Scheme Will

Facilitate a coordinated, national approach to mattress recycling
Implement a mattress accreditation scheme program

Support identification of end markets for mattress waste

Encourage a recycling mindset with manufacturers

Facilitate innovation across similar industries

Help us make a difference and recycle your mattress

The ABSC is the administrator of the Recycle My Mattress program. We work with manufacturers, their supply chains, retailers, importers and social impact recyclers to help you put your old mattress responsibly to bed so you can rest easy. Find responsible retailers to purchase a new mattress from and pick up your old one at the same time or, just book a collection of your old mattress.
