Spring Back Recycling’s goals are to offer disenfranchised men transitional, earned-income, employment opportunities and to create a recycling alternative to repurposing or landfilling used mattresses and box springs.
Why Recycle Mattresses?
Through mattress recycling, millions of unnecessary pounds of waste can be prevented each year.
- Over 30 million mattresses are sent to landfills across the country each year!
- Mattresses range in size from 27 to 60 cubic feet and average 60 lbs.
- Mattresses decompose slowly in a landfill, often taking over a decade.
- Mattresses absorb hazardous materials and store flammable pockets of air.
