The mattress recycling process

Mattress recycling involves breaking down the different components of a mattress and reusing them in various ways. We take the responsibility of mattress recycling seriously and strive to reduce landfill waste while preserving the environment. Here's a breakdown of what mattress recycling entails.

  • Metal

    Metal from springs and coils can be melted and used to create new products.

  • Foam Cushions

    Foam cushions can be used to create padding for carpet and moving pads.

  • Fibers & Fabrics

    Fibers and fabrics can be used to produce insulation, filters, and other items.

  • Wood

    Wood can be chipped and made into mulch.
