What does a hotel do with 400 used mattresses?

Asked by elbanditoroso (13675 points ) December 10th, 2013

I’m out of town and staying at a hotel where there is a monthlong project to replace all the box springs and mattresses. When I came back here after dinner, there were several large piles of mattresses in the parking lot. (At least it isn’t raining)

What happens to these mattresses and box springs? Do they go to the dump? Can they be recycled? Are they resold to unsuspecting consumers?
