Mattress reuse/recycling?

Steve George

Hi, we have a couple of a ikea mattresses, one single and one double that are in good nick but inevitably have some small stains, generally from the kids dribbling in their sleep. I know people don't generally want mattresses unless they are pristine, but it seems nuts to just throw them away at the tip now that we don't need them. Does anyone know of any way that they can be reused or recycled? I just can't bring myself to get rid of them in a way that means they end up in landfill somewhere.
