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.
BARC will take used mattresses and properly recycle them.
In Traverse City, we charge $20 for each mattress or box-spring, no matter the size. In Kaleva, the charge is $15 per mattress or box-spring.
For a $30 – $50 fee we will pick up old mattresses & box springs for individuals within the 6 county area of Northern Michigan. The counties include: Grand Traverse, Antrim, Kalkaska, Leelanau, Benzie, and Manistee. Please call us at (231) 632-2272 or fill out the form to schedule a pickup.
