Sleep Outfitters, Mattress Warehouse and Mattress King, all owned by parent company Innovative Mattress Solutions, are the only mattress retailers supplying Spring Back Recycling with used mattresses for recycling. By partnering with the organization, the stores will keep mattresses out of landfills while at the same time helping to create jobs for people who are challenged to secure employment, such as homeless and formerly incarcerated men, in an effort to help them get a fresh start.
