St. Charles business aims to keep 100 mattresses out of landfills with May recycling drive

The family-owned City Wide Mattress has been providing sleep comfort for Shorewood and surrounding communities for 5o years.

Verlo Mattress announced its St. Charles location is offering a free mattress recycling event this month.

Verlo Mattress of St. Charles wants to help the Kane County community keep mattresses out of local landfills. May is a popular month for consumers to buy new mattresses, driven by Memorial Day sales events, according to a news release from Verlo.

“With so many people replacing their old mattresses in May, we set a goal to keep at least 100 mattresses out of local landfills,” said Tommy Stetter, general manager and co-owner of Verlo Mattress of St. Charles.

No purchase is required for free mattress recycling. Residents can pick up a free recycling voucher this month at Verlo Mattress of St. Charles’ factory store located at 2682 E. Main St. Store hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.

Residents can drop off their old mattress and box foundation along with the voucher between 1 and 3 p.m. June 1 at the Verlo Mattress recycling drop site located in the East Main Street parking lot.

“Since opening, we’ve offered mattress recycling to all of our customers and we’re really excited to extend that out to the community,” Stetter said. “Over time, we want to keep thousands of mattresses out of landfills, but for now, our goal is at least 100 for May.”
