Bring Mattress Recycling to New York

Did you know that an estimated 15 million mattresses are discarded every year in the United States or an average of 50,000 per day? New York’s Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) estimates that some 1 million mattresses discarded in New York could be recycled each year. More than 80 percent of a mattress can be recycled, diverting valuable renewable resources from our landfills.

It’s time to let Governor Cuomo know that you want mattress recycling to be a top priority in this year’s New York budget!
