426 mattresses were recycled in 2021 through a partnership with BedShred and SCDHEC!

This effort diverted 10.9 tons of material from the landfill saving nearly 15,000 cubic feet of space!

The results were part of a pilot program generously funded by SCDHEC.  While the City's 2021 pilot program does not have ample funding to continue, residents are encouraged to recycle mattresses via
