Mattress Collection & Recycling

Beginning November 1, 2022 MassDEP is expanding their waste disposal ban to include mattresses and box springs.  Landfills, transfer stations, and waste-to-energy facilities across the Commonwealth will no longer accept them for disposal.  Mattresses and box springs must be recycled or donated for secondary uses.  For commonly asked questions,  read more about the changes (PDF).  

Massachusetts residents dispose of almost 300,000 mattresses and box springs every year.  This is a real waste as about 85 percent of what is in a mattress can be recycled.


  • If buying new, check with the retailer of your new mattress.
  • You can give mattresses away via a local gifting group like Buy Nothing or Freecycle.
  • Residents may contact directly with a private company for curbside pick-up and recycling of mattresses and box springs.  Below is the contact information for one such private company.  HandUp Mattress Recycling offers mattress pickup services in North Attleboro.  The Town has no contractual or other relationship with HandUp or any other company, and neither endorses or warrants the services provided by any such company.  This contact information is provided as courtesy to our residents.  Residents can directly contact HandUp to make an appointment for the curbside pickup of a mattress and/or box spring by going directly to their website or by calling 774-271-8844.
  • Residents with a valid Recycling Center sticker can bring their mattresses and/or box springs to the Recycling Center during normal business hours, Monday, Friday & Saturday 8:00 AM to 2:30 PM.  Cost is $40.00 for each item.
