UTEC Mattress Recycling offers a way to recycle and re-use the component parts of mattress and box springs, and it provides an employment opportunity for 17-25 year old men and women who are redefining their futures. 

 

Young people at UTEC hand-cut mattresses and recycle the steel, foam, wood, and cotton, diverting up to 85% of the materials out of the waste stream. 

 

UTEC is one of three organizations selected by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection to be an approved mattress recycler. UTEC urrently works with 20 municipalities and has worked with over 20 schools and hotels, making it the largest mattress recycler in northern Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire.
