Why Mattress Recycling?

Recycling your mattress can dramatically reduce your carbon footprint and help existing landfills last longer. A mattress can occupy between 20 and 60 cubic feet, making mattresses one of the largest commonly trashed items to end up in land fills.


Aside from taking up needed space, mattresses are often not made from biodegradable materials. Mattresses can even contain chemicals that can leach out into the surrounding soil and groundwater (Sleep Fresh Mattresses contain no harmful chemicals).


Most materials inside a mattress can be repurposed once the mattress is deconstructed, including:



  • Springs and Coils: Metal can be melted and made into new items
  • Foams: Mattress foams can be shredded and used in carpet padding, moving pads, or fuel source.
  • Fibers: Cotton and other fibers can be used in filters and insulation.
  • Fabrics and Upholstery: Can be reclaimed or reused in other items.
  • Wood: Can be chipped for mulch or burned for fuel.
