Join the Spring Back’s Effort to Reduce Mattress & Box Spring Waste
Join us in making a meaningful and lasting positive impact on our environment, and communities – both local and nationwide. By contributing your mattress and box spring, you are giving it an extended life, recycled, and repurposed into new materials – reducing the amount of toxic waste sitting in landfills. With your participation, we can also create employment opportunities for disenfranchised men, generate more tax revenue for our community and save residents money on privatized landfills. Whether you are a resident of Nashville or a business in the United States, anyone can join our efforts and support the cause.
What People Are Saying
“Organizations giving individuals a ‘hand up’ is what this community needs and that’s what you will find at Springback Recycling. Their vision of providing practical work and life skills to those transitioning from jail/prison to our neighborhoods provides purpose, responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment. These values turn lives around and make Nashville better for everyone.” -Nashville-Davidson County Sheriff Daron Hall
