A Quick Eco-Thrift FAQ

Here’s a quick FAQ and our contact information.

The most common questions we get asked with easy answers!

How do I recycle a mattress?

Eco-Thrift accepts mattresses for recycling between 10am and 5pm Tuesday through Saturdays. There is a $40 per piece fee for any mattress or box spring. We partner with SpringBack Mattress Recycling out of Commerce City. They are able to reclaim up to 90% of each mattress or box spring and hire men coming out of prison or halfway houses, who often have a hard time finding adequate employment. If you require a pick-up service for a mattress, please call SpringBack directly at 720-515-1328.

Do You Offer Pickup Services?

Yes! We never want transporting items to be a deterrent from donating. Give us a call to coordinate a donation pickup. For mattress recycling pick-up, please call SpringBack directly.
