Wednesday August 28th, 2013 - 9:34AM

ATLANTA--Simmons Bedding Company and its Hospitality Division announce the implementation of a new mattress-recycling program. The company recently partnered with Global Sustainability Solutions (GSS) to handle recycling services for hospitality sales.  

The new Simmons Hospitality/GSS program will provide mattress installation, removal and recycling services, including delivery coordination and installation of the new product, as well as removal and transportation of the old bed sets, including bedframes, to a designated recycling plant.

Under this new program, hospitality clientele purchasing new product from Simmons, such as the new Simmons Hospitality Beautyresty Recharge line, are offered the option of recycling their old mattresses through purchasing GSS’ services. The company offers complete turnkey service (including installation, removal and recycling), as well as removal and recycling services only.

“Simmons’ partnership with GSS gives our hospitality clients a cost-effective, hassle-free recycling option that dually streamlines the replacement process and battles landfill waste,” stated Steve Tipton, VP of Simmons Hospitality. “Through this partnership, we are proudly taking an active role in developing viable solutions to the mattress disposal dilemma.”
