Recycling Stimulates Economic Development
A mattress recycling and refurbishing plant in Bridgeport, Connecticut that opened in June will process 100,000 mattresses/year and employ 20 workers.

The recycling industry has created well over 1 million jobs and is projected to add another million as recycling levels continue to divert more and more material to industry and agriculture.
