Mattress Recycling: Everything You Need To Know

It’s estimated that 20 million mattresses are disposed of every year. This adds up to about 800 million cubic feet of landfill. What this does is:

  • Fill up the landfill because the mattresses are taking up too much space.
  • Make us create new landfills, thus endangering the animal habitat and reduce the available space

5 Mattresses stacked up in a pileThat is why mattress recycling is important.It is the only way you and I can help in lowering  the environment’s carbon footprint. That way, we won’t have to create a new one. Before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s look at:

What is Mattress Recycling

It is the process of taking bed components and reusing them to create something else. The process is entirely different from mattress refurbishing or renovating. A lot of materials used to make a mattress can be reused when the bed is dismantled. For instance:

  • Springs and coils:  They can be melted to create new ones
  • Foams: They are shredded to create the carpet and moving pads
  • Fibers: Useful in the creation of filters and insulation
  • Fabrics and upholstery: They are reclaimed to make other things
  • Wood: To create mulch or burn fuel.

Recycling of the mattress involves making use of these five components parts of the bed. It then begs the question:

How Do You Recycle a Mattress

Here we will share with you four options of recycling your mattress. That way, you will have at least an idea of what you are going to do with your old mattress. When you buy a new bed next time, remember recycling. You will sleep well knowing that you have, conserved the new resources, reduced pollution, and extended the lifespan of the landfill. Let us look at the four options you have right now:

Option #1: Resell it

If the mattress is in excellent condition, you can resell to sites like eBay or a close friend for a small amount. You will always find a customer as long as the mattress is in excellent condition.

Option #2: Donate it

A lot of companies and recycling plants exists in the USA that will accept the used beds free of charge. Places that accept furniture and homeless shelters will also be ideal for dumping your mattress. Most of these places will only take your mattress if it is in good condition. That means you may need to find more information before you donate your mattress.

Option #3: Junk hauling services

Junk hauling services are companies like  Junk-King Marin that accepts old mattress. All you need to do is reach out to them and inquire more about how you will dispose of your old mattress.

Option #4: Repurpose it

You can recycle or sell woods and springs. You can repurpose the padding and foams. All you can do is stuff them in a pillow, make pet beds, or use them as seating cushions. The fabric strap of the same mattress can be turned to rags or used for stuffing.

Conclusion

Whether you want to use a junk hauling service or donate your mattress, one thing to keep in mind is dumping a mattress is illegal. What’s worse is that it costs the government more than $70 million in illegal dumping.

That’s why states like California have come up with the California Used Mattress Recycling Act to regulate illegal dumping. That said, it would only be fair if you recycle your old mattress the right away for the sake of the environment. Our environment needs to be safe for us, plants, and animals.  Contact us for more information.

Fall in Love with Recycling

A few years back, say a decade or two ago, nobody was concerned with the accumulation of waste in landfills. There was ample land to create new dumps, and the problem was not as significant as it is today. However, poor waste disposal would later become a disaster, and a solution had to be found. That is how recycling came to be.

Salvaging involves converting waste into new and useful products. About 75% of all waste can be recycled, but we are only reusing 30% of our waste. This is a sure sign that we have to intensify our salvaging efforts.

But why is it so important?

Benefits of Recycling

  • Environmental Conservation

RecyclingAmericans generated 254 million tons of trash back in 2013. Most of this waste found its way to the 2,000 landfills in the country. Some of it finds its way to our oceans and lakes where it chokes marine life, while the rest decomposes in the landfills producing methane gas which is known for its greenhouse effect.

However, by stepping up your reutilizing efforts, you reduce the waste in our oceans and reduce carbon emissions which cause global warming.

Moreover, reutilizing will improve groundwater quality. How?

Well, landfills do not treat the waste which is rarely environmentally friendly. These contaminants will pollute groundwater when it rains, or there is a runoff making it harmful for consumption.

  • Increases Property Value

One indisputable way to beef up your property value is to reclaim waste. Landfills reduce the resale value as no one enjoys living near a smelly area. It reduces the amount of waste ending up in landfills and consequently reduces the number of disposal areas needed.

  • Saves Energy

Tossing an aluminum can in the trash takes less than a second. Reusing a can takes the same amount of time and has more benefits. Reusing one aluminum can save enough power to run your TV for up to 3 hours. Moreover, companies that use recycled aluminum use 95% less energy than those that use raw materials.

  • Recycling Creates Employment

Plants and industries are required for effective reutilization. If we were to ramp up our efforts of recycling, we would create ten times more jobs than landfill management.

According to a 2016 EPA report, reusing created 1.57 jobs for every 1,000 tons of waste recycled. The total jobs created by recycling were 757,000 and generated more than $36 billion in wages.

So, recycling is good business.

  • Ensures a Sustainable Future

There is only so much the environment can offer with its limited natural resources. Recycling ensures that we minimize the immediate effect on the environment and giving it time to recover while creating sustainable habits for the future.

In fact, salvaging one ton of paper saves 17 mature trees, 2 barrels of oil, three cubic yards of landfill space and 7,000 gallons of water.

Recycling is ABC easy and is a practice you should embrace. Given the benefits contrasted with the disadvantages of poor waste management, it is a no brainer that we should ramp up our efforts. Nonetheless, reusing is not easy while doing it as an individual and that is why you should engage our services to save yourself the trouble.
