Mattress Recycling

St. Vincent de Paul is the world leader in mattress recycling. DR3, our operation in California, was the first commercially viable mattress recycling business in the world. Today, with operations in Oakland, Woodland, and Stockton, California; and Eugene, Oregon; we recycle more than 300,000 mattresses and boxsprings every year.

How Does It Work?
Mattresses and boxsprings are cut open and separated into various components, including cotton, foam, wood and steel.  These materials are baled and shipped out for recycling. In 2016 we kept more than 300,000 discrete mattresses, box springs, and futon mattresses out of landfills.

In addition to providing a benefit for the planet St. Vincent's de Paul's mattress recycling program creates entry-level jobs for ex-offenders and others who have barriers to employment. We pay above minimum wage, provide benefits such as health care, and give people transferable skills that can help them find good-paying jobs in the community.

DR3 Mattress Recycling, our sister company in California, was featured on the Discovery Network's popular show Dirty Jobs in 2009. Check out this clip:
