Used Mattress Recycling Program
From the Bitterroot Mountains to the big sky prairies, it’s easy to see how the Treasure State earned its nickname. We, like many others, are thankful to call Montana home, and wish to preserve our state’s natural beauty for everyone’s enjoyment.
In the United States alone, used mattresses create huge headaches in landfills. Approximately 30 million mattresses are disposed of each year, many of which go straight to the landfill, where they jam up compactor machinery and decompose slowly over decades.
At Mattress Mill, we’re strong supporters of a clean environment. For years, we’ve recycled all of our plastic and cardboard byproducts, and donated clean mattresses in good condition to charity. Now, in addition to our current recycling initiatives, we’re proud to announce a new partnership with Spring Back Mattress Recycling to do our part to minimize the impact of used mattresses in our waste stream.
Here are a few of the many benefits of mattress recycling:
- Over 90 percent of the materials in a used mattress can be recycled
- Mattress recycling reduces waste stream by millions of pounds annually
- Foam, cotton and felt materials can be repurposed into carpet padding and insulation
- Wood frames can be chipped and shredded into landscape mulch
- Metal mattress springs are easily melted down to be made into new steel products
As always, Mattress Mill is happy to pick up your old mattress set when we deliver your new mattress set. In order to facilitate the recycling of used mattresses and box springs, Mattress Mill will apply a $20 fee per piece, the entirety of which will be applied to the transport and processing of mattresses to Spring Back for recycling. You can now rest easy knowing that your old bed will be recycled instead of ending up in a landfill.
If you are not a Mattress Mill customer, but would still like to recycle your old bed, we can facilitate that as well. The charge for recycling is the same $20 per piece, and we can come pick them up when we are in your area for a $25 stop charge. You can also schedule a time to drop off pieces to recycle, during business hours, at our facility.
