Mattress and Box Spring Covers
You must seal any mattress or box spring in a plastic bag before you put it out with regular garbage for bulk collection. This rule will help prevent the spread of bed bugs.
If you do not dispose of mattresses or box springs properly, they will not be collected, and you may receive a $100 fine.
The City does not provide mattress or box spring bags or covers. You can get them at department stores, home improvement stores, and moving supply centers. Bags can be any color except red or orange.
Set Out Instructions
Items must be placed at the curb or alley between 4 PM and midnight the evening before your appointment day.
If your items are not at the curb or alley at time of collection, you will need to schedule a new appointment.
If you need to dispose of a mattress that falls under any of these sizes, you should schedule an appointment to have them removed.
These sizes are listed from smallest to largest:
- Twin XL
- California King
These mattress sizes are generally larger than 4 feet by 3 feet. However, dimensions for these sizes may vary.
