Cessnock City Council is pleased to announce the hugely popular free mattress drop-off event will take place again next month.

The event will be held on Saturday 22 October, between 8am and 1pm, at the Mount View Basin Car Park, Mount View Road, Cessnock.  

Cessnock City residents will be able to dispose of up to four mattresses or bases, completely free of charge.

Cessnock City Council Mayor Jay Suvaal is encouraging residents to take advantage of this free drop-off event.

“Council collected 943 mattresses at the last mattress drop-off event which was the largest event we’ve seen in Kurri Kurri,” Mayor Suvaal said.

“This event is always really popular with our community and it’s also great for our environment, with 75% of the materials collected able to be recycled.”

This event is for Cessnock City Council residents only and proof of address is required via a driver’s licence or rates notice. Mattress drop-offs must also be made using a vehicle as there will be no pedestrian access.

If you’re unable to attend the event, mattresses can be taken to the Cessnock Waste Management Centre for disposal for a fee of $39.

This is the final mattress drop-off event for 2022, with the next event scheduled for February 2023.
