Mattress Disposal

How do I dispose a mattress in NYC?

Have to dispose of a mattress or box spring? Want to avoid a costly summons? Many residents are unaware of the proper way to dispose of a mattress / box spring. Ever since the Bed Bug outbreak a few years back mattresses and box springs have been required to be securely sealed in a plastic bag. You may be asking yourself why. By covering your mattress or box spring it prevents the Sanitation Workers who are removing the item from being exposed and lowers the risk of spreading Bed Bugs.

Where can you get a mattress bag?

Mattress / Box Spring bags may be purchased at department or hardware store. (Check your local store for availability). You may also purchase bags through Amazon from the links below.
