Come learn about the world of mattress disposal and how UTEC is teaming up with the state and other institutional partners to divert tons of materials away from the waste stream. Together, we are changing the way our communities think about mattress disposal and about redefining the future for proven-risk young people. 
  • Welcome from Secretary of EEA Matthew Beaton
  • The state of mattress recycling in MA
  • How we partner with the Commonwealth and with private organizations
  • UTEC's social enterprise model and how our young adults trade lives of violence and poverty for social and economic success
Location The Boston Foundation, 75 Arlington St., Boston, MA \
Lunch provided by cafe UTEC
At UTEC Mattress Recycling, tearing apart beds and recycling steel and foam is just part of the story. Just as society sometimes gives up on the young adults we serve at UTEC, people discard mattresses with little thought of where they end up. We are looking at ways to rethink about what happens to unwanted mattresses.
