Can I recycle my MiniJumbuk Wool Quilt?

Can I recycle my MiniJumbuk Wool Quilt?

MiniJumbuk has been proudly making Australia’s favourite wool bedding products for nearly 50 years. Handcrafted with care and attention to detail, MiniJumbuk mattress toppers, quilts and pillows are made using Australian wool, much of it sourced locally in South Australia’s Limestone Coast. We have partnered with local farmers to produce our Limestone Coast Wool quilt range, sourcing local premium Dorset wool that is perfect for our quilts.

LCW range

All MiniJumbuk products meet our strict quality standards and undergo stringent testing prior to market release. We are proud to offer a 7 year warranty on our Limestone Coast Wool quilt range and, with good care we know our quilts will last far longer. Like all good things that must end, even MiniJumbuk bedding products eventually wear out and need replacing. This is when we are often asked ‘How do I dispose of my old wool quilt or underlay?’


Unfortunately there are limited opportunities to recycle wool and other textiles in Australia. However, wool is durable and is often able to be repurposed. It is also biodegradable and will breakdown, returning nutrients to the soil as it decomposes. MiniJumbuk recommend the following ways to dispose of your old woollen quilts and mattress toppers.


Check for recyclers in your area

Some business offer textile recycling, often with a small fee. A quick google search is the best way to see if there is anything available in your area.


Donate to a charity

If your product is clean and still in good, useable condition, you may be able to donate it to charity. Remember to donate responsibly – it may be worthwhile checking with the charity first to ensure they can use it.


Donate to an animal shelter

Wool provides a warm cosy bed for animals. If you don’t have a pet that needs a new place to snooze, contact your local animal shelter or animal charity. Many pet charities will gladly accept old quilts and underlays to recycle for pet bedding.


Try composting

Keen gardeners may like to compost their wool bedding. Wool is all natural and biodegradable, beginning to break down in as little as 3 months. You can add small pieces to your compost pile or worm farm, or simply bury it in the garden to improve the soil.


Pop it in the bin

If all other avenues for reuse or recycling are exhausted, pop your bedding in the bin. While going to landfill is the least environmentally friendly option for disposal, unlike other man-made fibres wool fibres will breakdown.
