Generated Materials Recovery

Commercial & Industrial Foam Recycling Services

For the last 20 years, Generated Materials Recycling (GMR) has helped businesses recycle many different types of foam products. During that time, we have worked closely with thousands of manufacturing and industrial companies who have needed commercial foam recycling services.

We understand that waste and recycling is only a small aspect of your goal as a company, so we ensure a personalized experience that works for you. If your company has a need to outsource foam recycling services and make the most of its waste, then you are our ideal client.

Using our combined knowledge and experience, we work hard to bring your recycling goals into fruition.

Here are a few types of foam we can help you recycle:


  • Mattress Foam: mattress foam is often made of polyurethane foam or viscoelastic foam.
  • Visco: this is often used as memory foam and is included in mattresses, toppers, and pillows. 
  • Post-industrial prime: this mainly includes expanded polystyrene foam, which is often used in packaging, that is scrapped at a facility without ever being used.
  • Post-industrial consumer: this is similar to a post-industrial prime, except this foam material is recycled after its intended end-use.

These are only a few types of foam we recycle. If you have other types of foam you would like to recycle that isn’t listed here, contact us today.

GMR takes the necessary time to understand your business and your foam recycling goals. Once we understand those goals, we will provide you with a detailed proposal that outlines equipment, transportation, and other commodities. Next, we personally deliver and install the necessary equipment. Last but not least, we will set up a service schedule that best fits your company’s operation.

Types of Equipment

How is the Foam Collected?

Once GMR has collected your recycled materials, there are a few ways in which we transport the materials to our recycling facility. Specifically, we transport foam to our facility using a baler.


We offer maximum flexibility when it comes to picking up your waste so as not to disturb your business. Basically, this means we respect your floorspace, dock space, equipment, equipment, and labor and thus reflect the unique conditions of each client. After we collect the waste, we transport it to the recycling facility using a van trailer.

Why GMR?

GMR owns and operates its own recycling facilities around the United States. All the materials that are collected by GMR have the highest standards of safety and environmental regulatory compliance issued by the EPA. At these facilities we sort, clean, and prepare these materials for shipment up to the next step in the supply chain. We have our own fleet of trucks and tractor trailers as well as tailored logistics capabilities for your unique situation.

The GMR Difference – Pricing

Unlike most recycling services, GMR pays the true market price for your recycled materials. That being said, our prices fluctuate depending on the current market. On the other hand, other recycling companies focus on specific grades and commodities, which enables them to charge you whatever they want. That means our prices are as affordable as possible!

The biggest difference between GMR and other recycling services is our client-centric focus. You and your business come first. GMR is proud to have a fully transparent pricing model since the prices for foam will vary per month.
