Regional Mattress/Box Spring Recycling Program Sites

Beginning October 24, clean and dry mattresses and box springs must be recycled - Find out Where!

Mattress Recycling Program

Visit the Franklin County Solid Waste Management Website for Updates to this Advisory.

The Franklin County Solid Waste Management District is working with five towns to accept clean and dry mattresses and box springs for recycling. This program is open to residents in all District towns. The program is only for clean and dry fabric covered mattresses and box springs, including foam and crib mattresses.

Beginning on October 24, 2022 residents must take clean and dry mattresses and box springs to a recycling program in Bernardston, Colrain, Deerfield, Montague, Wendell, and Greenfield. The MassDEP now prohibits all clean and dry mattresses and box springs from going into the trash for landfill disposal and these will be rejected if brought to a transfer station for disposal.

Shopping for a new mattress? Ask your mattress seller if they will take away your old mattress when they deliver the new one. Some retailers will include this service as part of the delivery, and some charge a fee.

All regional mattress recycling sites charge $35 per mattress or box spring regardless of size. Check the specific information for each site before bringing a mattress for recycling.

Bernardston Transfer Station, Nelson Rd, Thursday and Saturday 7 am – 5 pm. Checks only.

Colrain Transfer Station, Charlemont Rd, Saturday 8 am – 4 pm. Cash or checks.
