You may not realize it because they are so big, but mattresses can be recycled- just not in your curbside recycling. Everything from the steel inner springs, foam, box-spring wood and fabric can be made into something new.

Mattresses may be dropped off for recycling at Second Chance Recycling in Minneapolis or picked up at your home for a fee.

Second Chance Recycling is a social enterprise business empowering people facing employment barriers to re-enter the workforce and achieve lifelong successes within their communities.

The Hennepin Recycling Group (HRG) contracts with Second Chance Recycling to collect mattresses at Special Materials Drop-Off Day. HRG pays a portion of the disposal fee to incentivize residents to recycle mattresses. The next HRG Special Materials Drop-Off Day is Saturday, April 24.
