We recycle mattresses and box springs by cutting them up and repurposing 90 percent of the components into carpet pad and reused steel. There are over 10 byproducts from the beds and box springs, including foam, cotton, steel, wood and some plastic. We operate some heavy machinery and work in a warehouse environment.
We have been operating in Arlington for over one year now with volunteers and 10 paid full and part time employees. We also have several special needs workers who have found their first job with us. We have saved over 10,000 mattresses and boxsprings from the landfills.
We keep thousands of pounds of discarded beds and box springs from the landfills.
