Mattress B Gone is dedicated in helping to reduce the amount of mattresses going into our local landfills in Houston. Our goal is to eliminate any mattresses from having to go into our landfills. The average mattress takes up 23 cubic feet of landfill space. When recycled, this is a huge amount of refuse that goes back into useful products instead of filling the landfill throughout Harris and Fort Bend Counties. Used mattress disposal is a growing problem in US landfills. Traditional disposal at landfills is becoming expensive and in many cases, no longer allowed. Because of increased regulations, space constraints, and decisions to ban mattresses from many landfills, disposal becomes almost impossible and recycling becomes the smart and viable alternative.
