Whether you are updating mattresses and furniture, replacing worn carpets, or undergoing a major overhaul, Blue Goblin can remove and recycle a broad range of your renovation and refurbishment waste.

Mattresses and Flexible Foam Furniture

P
roper disposal of mattresses at the end of their useful life is a growing problem throughout the recycling and waste management industries, and the problem is greatly magnified for commercial users, who may be in the situation of replacing and needing to dispose of hundreds of mattresses at a single location.  At an average of 23 cubic feet and 55 pounds per mattress, these items are among the largest – and most expensive – items hotels, hospitals, and other commercial users routinely throw away.  Compounding the problem, many communities are no longer accepting mattresses at their landfills, or are charging increasing fees for their disposal.

Blue Goblin can provide a recycling solution for your discarded bulk mattresses, and may even be able to begin processing on-site.  Our technology cleanly and safely converts used mattresses into briquettes that can be used as recycled plastic or plastic components, while capturing and neutralizing the harmful ODS gasses that improper destruction of these items releases into our environment.

In addition to processing mattresses, Blue Goblin can remove and recycle all types of flexible foam furniture, such as foam seat cushions, couches, and other items with foam components.
