Junk niche: mattress disposal & recycling

ga('send', 'event', 'Eco & Sustainability', 'article', 'article-industry-impression', {nonInteraction: true});

San Francisco-based BedBusters is focusing on a specific element of household garbage: mattresses. For about USD 100, the company will haul away a two-piece full-sized mattress set. Extra charges apply if the haulers must climb more than 18 stair steps, and removing bigger mattresses costs more. Riding the eco wave, the mattress disposal service has incorporated an important green element. Once the mattress is carted away, it’s taken to a recycling centre where a machine grinds the mattress back into its basic elements of steel, wood and foam, all of which can be reused.
