Apartment Mattress Recycling

In 2023, Ramsey/Washington Recycling & Energy  and Second Chance Recycling  are offering a free pilot program to apartments located in Ramsey and Washington counties. This is a great opportunity to try out recycling while saving money on mattress disposal.

In 2022, participating apartments recycled 279 mattresses
– that’s over 15,000 pounds of waste prevented!

How It Works

Talk with a sustainability specialist about your
needs and contact wastewise@mnchamber.com to participate

Request mattress pickup by Second Chance Recycling

Complete a brief survey at the end of the program

Several options for collection are available, including:

  • By request as needed
  • Pre-arranged dates/timeframes, including one-day, weekend, weekly and monthly
  • Seasonally (example: weekly collection during summer/fall)

The pilot program is scheduled to run through the end of 2023, at which time participants will get more information about how to continue recycling service if they are interested.
