Free residential mattress recycling pilot program

New! For a limited time, we are accepting mattresses and box springs for free recycling at the Brady 4R Winnipeg Depot.

Mother Earth Recycling, our partner for this pilot, will recycle up to 8,000 of the mattresses and box springs brought to the Brady 4R Winnipeg Depot during the pilot and keep them out of the landfill.

The pilot will run until January 31, 2020 or until we reach our goal of 8,000 units, whichever comes first. Be sure to bring us your mattresses and box springs soon so you don’t miss out!
