Mattress Recycling

IMG_0277_cc.jpg

The equivalent of 20 Semi-Trailers of mattresses have been save from landfilling as of November 4, 2018 !!!

The Lyon County Regional landfill is incorporating space saving measures to extend the usable life of the current landfill; thereby delaying costly phase construction. About 80% of a mattress and bed frame is recyclable, recovering the  material for other uses such as carpet padding, textiles, and pallets. By recycling your mattress and bed frame you are also providing jobs for adults with disabilities through the Advance Opportunities. Lyon County is proud to partner with Advance to create jobs, and save valuable air space at the landfill.

Bring your mattress and box frame to the mattress recycling facility (the old hockey arena) by the Public Works building for recycling! There is a $7 charge that goes to facility costs and employee wages. If the mattress is filthy, damaged, or infested, it must go to the landfill for a $25 fee.
