Even for those of us who really try to reduce waste in our lives, stuff comes along from time to time that is just hard to find a place to recycle. What do you do with old mattresses? It’s not too often that most people have to deal with this.
But OSU’s University Housing & Dining Services has a semi-regular stream of used mattresses to deal with. What do they do? They’ve found a couple of outlets. One is the Washington State Department of Corrections with their new mattress recycling program. Another, suggested by OSU Campus Recycling, is a Portland company: Environmentally Conscious Recycling.
It’s good to know there are multiple outlets for odds and ends. Another great resource for the Corvallis community is The ReUse Directory. Check it out!
