Mattress Recycling


Do you have extra mattresses or box springs at your home?

Don’t throw them away, recycle those mattresses at Goodwill of Silicon Valley! While mattresses are not commonly recycled, Goodwill's mattress recycling program recycles over 90% of mattress materials.  In 2016, Goodwill of Silicon Valley accepted and diverted over 40,000 mattresses from landfill.

Goodwill's mattress recycling program creates jobs for veterans struggling with homelessness, unemployment, and substance abuse. In 2016, Goodwill served over 150 veterans and successfully placed 75 of those veterans into full-time jobs. Goodwill started this program in association with the City of San Jose and US Department of Labor, to provide jobs for Veterans who might struggle finding employment elsewhere.  In 2015, Goodwill of Silicon Valley became a state certified mattress recycling facility.

You can drop-off old mattresses and/or box springs at any Goodwill retail store for a $20 fee per item.  

You can also drop-off  old mattresses and/or box springs for FREE at our main plant (at 1080 North 7th St. in San Jose) between 8am until 3pm.  Monday thru Friday.
