What Does Second Chance Recycling Do?
Second Chance Recycling specializes in recycling mattresses, box springs and batteries. We have strong contractual relationships with Hennepin County and the City of Minneapolis. Our services are cost-effective, flexible and adaptable.
Mattress and Box Spring Recycling
Mattresses and box springs that would have ended up in landfills are accepted for a fee of $15 each at our Minneapolis location; it is best to make an appointment so we can help with the unloading. The mattresses and box springs are dismantled and the materials are separated for recycling. If the mattresses are moldy or wet and/or have individually-wrapped coils, there is an additional charge. Mattresses with bed bugs are not accepted. For quantities of mattresses or box springs of 40 or more, please contact us to make arrangements for drop-off.

We have contracts to collect batteries from many facilities around the county, and they are sorted at our Minneapolis location. We do not accept batteries from the general public. Recycling batteries keeps harmful toxins away from the waste stream.
