Components of mattresses may be recyclable, but they are difficult to deconstruct at home.*
Mattresses may be accepted by retailers for recycling when purchasing new ones.
You may wish to try selling your mattress on Craig’s List or a Facebook sale page, or give it away on a Freecycle site.
Most local resale shops (Goodwill, etc.) do not accept used mattresses, however, you might want to contact such agencies as Carpenter’s Place in Rockford for current needs.
Locally, many garbage haulers will accept mattresses as bulk items. Contact your trash company for details.
*Check on YouTube for instructions to disassemble mattresses.
Note: Residents of Beloit, Turtle and Newark, Wisconsin only may take mattresses to the City of Beloit Recycling Drop Off:
