City Begins Mattress Collection Pilot Program December 3
Posted Date: 11/19/2012 10:00 AM

Beginning December 3, the City will implement a one-year pilot program with Mattress GO Round to collect used mattresses and box springs from city residents. Mattress GO Round is a local company that recycles old mattresses and box springs by repairing, sanitizing and rebuilding them for resale.

Starting December 3, residents should call the City’s Contact Center at 373-CITY (2489) to request mattress and box spring collection or they can drop off their old mattresses/box springs at Mattress GO Round, located at 1601-A Yanceyville St.

The pilot program is expected to reduce bulk collection, hauling and disposal costs for the City. It also means less bulk waste in the landfill.

For collection of other bulk items – items too big to fit in a green trash container, such as furniture, swing sets, lawnmowers, etc. – residents can simply leave items at the curb on their regular recycling collection day for City pickup.

For more information on mattress and box spring collection, call the City’s Contact Center at 373-CITY (2489).
