Over 30 million mattresses end up in landfills each year in the U.S. Mattress recycling reduces this huge, expensive, toxic, and unnecessary demand on critically over-burdened landfills. Our mattress recycling process breaks down over 90% of each mattress into individual components (steel, foam, ticking, cotton, wood) and recycles or re-purposes them.
You can help reduce the burden on Colorado’s landfills by scheduling a pick-up OR by dropping your mattress with Spring Back Colorado.
Our work doesn’t stop there. Spring Back Colorado’s triple bottom line is to employ the disenfranchised and those with barriers to employment, cultivate environmental stewardship, and work towards social justice. Our programs give employees an opportunity to re-establish themselves and strengthen their path to recovery and prosperity.
In 2005 Christopher Conway entered the Denver Rescue Mission as a volunteer, and his life was forever changed. While serving the community of the Denver Rescue Mission, he heard a redundant theme that the population he was servicing weekly just wanted an opportunity to work. So he began to formulate an idea of how to serve the disenfranchised population through gainful employment opportunities. The result was the evolution of Spring Back Colorado, which for the past ten years has been an industry pioneer in the mattress recycling industry. Christopher saw the value proposition of offering redemptive employment opportunities to the men in transition while using a daily post-consumer product as the catalyst of a remarkable business model.
Christopher has spent the past ten years developing and refining every aspect of the mattress recycling business model; culture, environmental stewardship, felon friendly hiring, secondary market textile product placement, and long term strategic development practices. It has been an amazing journey that has filled a void within our community, provided hundreds of men with hope, employment, income, stability, and self-pride. Today Christopher spends his time growing the business model but more importantly, spending time in the warehouse pouring encouragement, hope, and love into his team of exceptionally hard-working men. This has allowed Spring Back Colorado to be a company that is truly serving the bottom line of People, Planet, Purpose.
We will always honor and appreciate the your hard work and the impact you made on this company Pops. May you forever rest in peace.
