Residential Services has been working with LRP Recycling to greatly expand mattress recycling from the College Houses. In the past, only 250 to 300 mattresses were able to be recycled. This year, we recycled close to 1,000 mattresses – over 25 tons!. It took three and a half trucks to remove the mattresses with a little room left over in the last truck to also take assorted furniture (couches, chairs, etc.) to also be recycled.
