Go Guaranteed Green
As an SGS Recovery Partner, waste streams are beneficially reused for other materials, products, and our revolutionary alternative fuel. Mattresses consume up to 30 cubic feet of space and can take centuries to degrade in landfills. Make sure your worn box springs and mattresses are handled responsibly and beneficially through the proprietary Guaranteed Green solution at SGS Recovery.
Your Mattresses Serve a Greater Repurpose
More than 75% of a mattress can be recycled instead of taking up precious landfill space. Here’s how:
Fabric and fibers are shredded and used primarily as alternative fuel sources.
Foam padding is also separated and shredded primarily for reuse as alternative fuel and sometimes absorbent materials.
Steel springs are recycled as scrap and used to make new materials.
Wooden frames of box springs are shredded and burned as a cleaner, alternative fuel source as well as a variety of other product applications.
From Your Facility to New Fuel
SGS Recovery beneficially reuses worn, spent, or damaged mattresses—turning them into new products and alternative fuel sources—from a variety of facilities, business, residences, and more. Our Responsible Recovery + Removal teams are able to travel to your facilities, remove large quantities of mattresses, and recycle them so they don’t end up in a landfill.
