NW Furniture Bank Mattress Recycling to Close June 10, 2023


After much consideration, the NW Furniture Bank team alongside of our Board of Directors, has made the decision to close the doors of our mattress recycling center as of June 10, 2023.


The NW Furniture Bank Mattress Recycling center, which opened in 2013, has experienced great success in multiple ways including providing mattresses for NW Furniture Bank clients, creating jobs for those who have been justice-involved, as well as reducing the impact on local landfills by recycling more than 324,000 mattresses.


Like many organizations and businesses, the NW Furniture Bank Mattress Recycling center was heavily impacted by the pandemic. Since 2019, the increasing supply chain challenges coupled with inflation, as well as the changing market, caused a significant downturn in the amount of mattresses we could reuse and recycle.


“We remain committed to helping provide a good night’s sleep to our clients and will continue to achieve this by utilizing a different and sustainable business model that allows us to provide mattresses to the families we serve,” said Jeremy Simler, Executive Director of the NW Furniture Bank. “We acknowledge the impact this decision has on our community and we are extremely grateful for the many years we have been able to partner with our community in this endeavor.”


There are other options available for recycling in the Puget Sound area including UpTekk, in Auburn, Washington.

Have a mattress you need to get rid of? We can recycle it!

Mattress Recycling Quick Q & A -

Recycle? Really? Yes, 90% of a mattress is composed of recyclable materials. 

Can we drop off our mattress? Yes, for a fee we will process your mattress to ensure that it does not end up in a landfill. The items can be in any condition but MUST be dry.

Will you pick up our used mattress? Yes, if you live within 15 miles of NWFB we will pick up your mattress set for a fee.

How much does it cost? $40 per piece for in-home pick-up. $25 per piece if it is brought to the furniture bank. A king which is 3 pieces are only charged for 2 pieces.

What if the mattress is stained or ripped? We can still recycle it, but it must be dry.
