West Coast Hotel Liquidation proudly partners with MBC Mattress Recycling Company and Gateway Mattress Recycling Company for the purpose of recycling and rebuilding used mattresses and box springs. MBC has been in business since 1980 and recycles approximately 7,000 pieces (mattresses, box springs, foundations) per month.
The recycled units, which would otherwise be disposed of into landfills, are stripped to the springs, rebuilt from the inside out, and sold in the retail market as affordable, quality built beds.
First, the units are sterilized in large ovens, heated to 205 degrees for 11 1/2 hours. Then, the old covers are removed from the units and discarded. Springs are inspected, repaired if needed, insulation material may be reused if it is in good condition, a new layer of padding and new covers are sewn on to each unit. Components that are not used for rebuilding such as old covers, foam, wood, and steel are recycled separately based on the market demand for these items.
There is a tremendous market for rebuilt beds, especially in this economy!
Used mattresses and box springs create a tremendous burden on our landfills. Recycling them is the responsible, environmentally friendly alternative. Should you have any questions concerning this process, please do not hesitate to contact us!
