There are a number of uses for materials in this category which includes mattresses and box springs, as well as sheets, blankets, etc. If the item is still clean and usable some charities in our area will accept them.
If the mattress set is past its prime and no longer usable, recycling is problematic and the pieces need to be totally deconstructed so that each component can be recycled properly.
