In addition to
recycling futons we manufacture, we can usually recycle futons made from another manufacturers. In order for us to be able to recycle your futon it must be constructed using commonly used futon making materials (foam, cotton etc.). We do not recycle traditional mattresses.
Cotton Cloud retains the right to refuse recycling any futon.
The most common reasons we can't recycle a futon are:
- It contains material that we can not easily recycle (springs, some foams, etc.)
- It is in too poor of condition for us to handle (extensive mold, mildew, etc.)
- Cotton Cloud does not recycle futons that are wet or extensively soiled (As a rule of thumb
if you're scared to touch it so are we!).
If you are concerned your futon will not qualify for recycling contact us before bringing it in..

Other ideas on how to reuse an old futon
Pass on well loved bedding to your beloved pet. Cats and dogs are very attracted to cotton & wool bedding, and intuitively sense the natural fibers to be a perfect place to rest.
Thrift stores and homeless shelters “may” accept your old futon as long as it not wet or soiled. As a rule of thumb ask yourself -- "would I use this futon?" If so, it is probably an acceptable donation.
Animal hospitals and animal shelters use blankets, towels, and sheets as bedding. This is a great way to recycle old futons that you can't donate to a homeless shelter because it has been well used. Plus, most animal shelters can't afford to buy comfort items, like cozy bedding.
Organic Garden Beds:
Is there an area in your landscape where you need to start over? Many people use black plastic or a landscape "fabric" mesh to put on top of problematic weeds. Instead of putting plastics in the ground that will eventually pollute your landscape, try laying down an old futon, then cover with good rich composted material. Before doing this make sure the futon contains only cotton or wool. Foam doesn't compost well.
