    If you live in the Dallas or Austin Texas area Sleep Experts will take all the unwanted mattresses and box springs. They send them off to a company that tears the mattresses and box springs down and replaces all the material with new. Sleep Experts then buys some of them back and donate the mattress to different local Charities.

    I wonder if using the components of a mattress for some… ahem, chemical experimentation counts as recycling. I mean people make rockets by using Coke and propane. And if you mix polyurethane with aluminum and… um. I’ll say no more lest I get arrested even though I use a foreign VPN =)

    Usually Mattresses have metal springs in them. I have taken some mattresses and took the fabric off of them and used the spring part as fencing. I have a bunch of chickens in a pen that has regular chicken wire plus 3 mattress springs. I used them for extra wire that I didn’t have. Also box springs , I’ve seen on the internet they can be used for a book case, add extra shelves. Also they can be used in the garden. Take off fabric and lay it down, fill with potting soil and plant vegetables, flowers. They can be used as a trellis for your flowering vines. I guess what ever comes to mind if you really give your old mattress and box springs a thought. Think outside the box as someone has said to me.
