Rusty Springs Mattress Recycling Simple Solution
Our Rusty Springs Mattress Recycling Program provides a simple low-tech solution to mattress recycling – a solution that enables smaller or more remote communities in BC to create employment opportunities while keeping recyclable material out of the landfill.
Benefits of this program to your community
- Creates meaningful employment for people living with barriers
- Keeps high volume recyclable material out of the landfill
- Low cost and simple to run
- Flexible to suit different needs of the workers and the landfills
Is your community a candidate?
Many communities in the lower mainland have a variety of mattress recycling options like sending mattresses to a shredding facility. However, these options may be prohibitive in the rest of BC, due to high transport costs and road closures/delays due to more frequent weather events. We provide a simple, cost-effective, and low-tech option to recycle onsite at local landfills.
The community benefits with new employment opportunities for the local labour market and makes a significant environmental impact.
