SLAYTON - Murray County is launching a new program to help keep recyclable mattresses out of the landfill.

Starting Monday, residents may bring their used box springs and mattresses to the Murray County recycling building, 1820 Erlandson Drive, Slayton, between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The cost is $10 per mattress.
Mattresses and box springs recycled through this new program are broken up into four main components: steel, foam, wood and fibers, which will be shipped off and used to make new products such as carpet padding, steel products, filters and automotive insulation.
Approximately 85 percent of the contents of a mattress and its box springs can be recycled.
