Mattress Recycling


About the Program

The City’s mattress recycling program began in 2018 as an effort to address the challenges involved in disposing of bulky items such as mattresses, tires and furniture. Since then, more than 12,000 mattresses have been collected at the City’s recycling sites, helping to conserve valuable space at the City’s Noble Hill Sanitary Landfill.

The program is currently provided through a contract with Victory Mission. Mattresses are transported to the facility, then deconstructed. Components are processed, shipped and ultimately become raw materials utilized by a number of manufacturers in products such as construction materials, wood chip mulch and more.
