4. Pick Up Service

5. Break Down & Reuse

Most traditional innerspring mattresses can be reused by disassembling into recyclable parts, sold for scrap, or used around your home for various projects.

Steel springs can be bundled and sold as scrap to be reincarnated as new steel components, such as wind turbines. Foam material can be reused as carpet padding or moving blankets, and when recycled, can be used as biomass fuel. Wood parts can be reused as landscaping mulch, stuffing for pet beds, or as scrap material for a variety of projects.

Make extra cash by selling shredded foam if your old mattress was made of foam - or reused in couch cushions, carpet padding and even building insulation.

Note: Innerspring mattresses contain sharp components - disassemble with caution.
