What's New – Mattress Recycling!

Two new partners are now recycling mattresses! King County continues to recruit partners for Take it Back Network mattress recycling locations. Mattresses are recyclable and commonly recycled in parts of Oregon, California, and British Columbia. Learn more about becoming a mattress Take it Back Network member (PDF, 126 K).

 

The Take it Back Network is a partnership among government agencies, retailers, repair shops, charitable organizations and recyclers that provides consumers with options for recycling certain wastes – and their hazardous components – in a safe and cost effective manner.

Take it Back Network locations will accept electronic products such as computers, TVs, cell phones and certain household electronics. Fluorescent light bulbs including compact fluorescent bulbs and straight tubes can also be recycled at certain Take it Back Network locations. Mattresses and box springs are the newest products to be recycled by certain Take it Back Network partners. Find locations and hours in the 2013 Take it Back Network brochure (PDF, 238 K) or below.
