TMS also houses the only mattress recycling facility in the Central Florida area. With the addition of the recycling department, TMS uses and re-uses every single item donated to its fullest. TMS is able to recycle the unusable items through their individual parts: metals, cardboard, sheet plastics, fabric, foam, wood, and electronics. Since 2011, TMS recycling program has reconstructed enough mattresses to save 1.5 million cubic feet of landfill space, reducing dump expenses and protecting the environment.
TMS collects donations of furniture, appliances, household items, linens, dishes, and miscellaneous items that are used to create a home. The items are provided to pre-qualified households, families, and individuals to help them reestablish their home.
The mission of The Mustard Seed is to help rebuild the lives of families and individuals who have suffered disaster or personal tragedy by providing household furnishings and clothing while being environmentally responsible to our community.
