How do I get rid of my mattress, that is the question.
with eco-dumpster® Bay Area wide, 6 days a week.
Put it in your bin, or call us for a pick up, it gets recycled
No, NO ONE is going to be sleeping on your bed.
The mattress is broken down and the materials are recycled into something else.
Our service beats leaving it outside to anger neighbors
Beds are one of those pieces of household junk which can be both unsightly and unhygienic if left out in the public view.
From buried to buried treasure, recycled materials may be used in your next car
In the not so recent past mattresses were literally buried in the earth.
Yes, literally buried in landfills all over America.
Just sitting there… waiting for centuries,
to slowly……. decompose.
Luckily, that has changed.
Pieces are now collected for recycling: Here is how
1. Mattress is cut up, essentially dissected
2. Recyclable material is separated
3. Materials are baled and shipped overseas for recycling
What happens to the materials?
- Steel is melted and recast as new items everything from cars to gym equipment.
- Foam is reused for foam in carpet pad
- Cotton is used in insulation
- Wood is used as fuel for production of electricity or can be composted.
What CAN’T be recycled.
Obviously we aren’t a crime scene clean up company so if you have something to that effect, don’t call us lol.
Apparently soaking wet mattresses, ridiculously soiled ones, and ones with known bug infestations cannot be recycled.
It’s important to note, recycling these bad boys is still a manual endeavor and it is not done in house. It’s done by an organization that specializes in recycling mattresses.
