At an average of 23 cubic feet and 55 pounds, beds are among the largest items that a hotel has to throw away. That also means they're among the most expensive. With the International Sleep Products Association (ISPA) and State Legislators pushing hard to enforce how mattresses should be disposed of, hotels are still continuing to send them to the landfill because they are unaware of any other greener solutions.
According to the ISPA 35-40 million mattresses are sold each year. 14 million old mattresses are landfilled and 20 million are re-sold through renovators.
LRP Recycling is a Mattress Recycling Service that provides all the logistics necessary to remove and transport these mattresses from any hotel nationwide. Our main goal is to prevent these items from ending up in a landfill.
We might be able to reduce your cost if you are currently disposing mattresses during any renovations. We recycle mattresses nationally, which should cost significantly less than disposal and easier than ordering numerous roll-offs. We also have an install/removal team for mattresses if you need to outsource that portion of a project.
Official Documented Proof
Once the mattresses are removed from your facility and recycled, your institution will receive a Certificate of Total Recycling that you can proudly display. The certificate will document that no items from your property have ended up in a landfill as well as the weights and process types used to recycle the mattresses.
