Vancouver’s Ambitious Goal to Become The Greenest City

Vancouver is hoping to become the ‘Greenest City‘ by 2020. This ambitious goal is something that we can all strive towards. It will be a hard designation to gauge and it definitely won’t solely come down to the number of bike lanes we have. We all have to do our part to keep Vancouver a sustainable and environmentally progressive city.

In the mattress world, this means recycling. Mattresses have a life cycle and when their 8-10 year term comes to an end, they need to be disposed of by a green method.

Vancouver currently has a number of options for environmentally friendly mattress disposal. You can take your old mattress to a Transfer Station where they charge $15 per item or you can take them directly to a mattress recycler.

MattressRecycling.ca is one of your private recycling options. This company just received an award for ‘Best Green Business’ by the Small Business BC Awards. They charge $12.50 for residential mattresses and box springs. They also take metal bed frames free of charge.

A third option is to call an independent junk removal company. Companies like 1-800-GOT-JUNK will come to your home for mattress removal, saving you from an awkward transportation trip.
