The City of Boston will accept memory foam, box springs, innerspring, hybrid, latex, and airbed. We will not accept futons and other similar non-mattress items, those items may be placed out for curbside trash collection.
The City of Boston residential mattress program does not service buildings with seven units or more. Please consult your property manager on the proper protocol for recycling mattresses in your building which is a state requirement as of November 1, 2022.
More than 75 percent of your unwanted mattresses and box springs are recyclable. After collection, mattresses and box springs will be donated for reuse or recycled. These materials will be used to make insulation, carpet padding, mulch, and new metal items.
