Mattress Recycling

Mattress and Box Spring Recycling

Bay Area Recycling is the place to turn when looking to clear out your unwanted mattresses and box springs. Either drop-off at our Traverse City location or schedule a pick-up. We service the 6 country area of Grand Traverse, Antrim, Kalkaska, Leelanau, Benzie and Manistee.

Bulk Mattress Recycling

BARC provides bulk mattress removal for hotels, hospitals, colleges, universities, nursing homes and assisted living communities across Michigan and much of the Midwest. If you have more than 10 mattresses to recycle, there is a quantity discount.  Contact us to coordinate your mattress recycling and removal.

Individual Mattress Recycling

Individuals can drop off old mattresses and box springs for recycling at the recycling centers list below.

Donated mattresses need to be dry, intact, and have no signs of bed bugs. Some light staining is okay but darker brown stains will not be accepted. Mattresses should be stored either indoors or off the ground, under a tarp, prior to drop off.For BARC’s full pricing sheet – CLICK HERE
