Madd Love Market’s Mattress Recycling Social Enterprise serves individuals and communities by providing environmentally friendly disposal of used mattresses and box springs.
Our team manually deconstruct and extract recyclable material from mattresses and box springs, with an average of 85% of the mattress being recycled. Our young adults participate in deconstruction as well as unloading deliveries of mattresses, and develop valuable warehouse skills.
How it Works
Serving New England
Serving the Environment
Serving Young Adults
We contract with municipalities, hotels, schools, universities, assisted living facilities, hospitals, and correctional facilities. The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection selected UTEC as a qualified vendor to provide statewide mattress recycling services to state organizations including cities and towns.
UTEC currently provides mattress recycling services for the following cities and towns: Acton, Bedford, Carlisle, Cambridge, Framingham, Hanover, Kingston, Lowell,, Marblehead, Medfield, Newburyport, Norwood, Pembroke, Sherborn, and Winchester.

When we divert mattresses from the waste stream, we recycle roughly 85% of each piece, by weight. UTEC youth hand-cut the mattresses and recycle the steel, foam, wood, some of the toppers and cotton, providing a quantifiable relief to the environmental harm caused by mattresses going to landfills and incinerators.
Mattress Recycling is the first stop of our Workforce Development program for Young Adults entering UTEC. During their time in the warehouse, Young Adults gain essential entry-level work
skills and benefit from a curriculum grounded in Socio-Emotional and soft skill development. Madd Love Market Mattress Recycling enables our youth to gain hands-on industrial / warehousing experience in a safe, structured workplace while gaining an understanding of the environmental impact they are delivering through their work.”
