Mattress Recycling Event

Getting ready to dispose of an old mattress or box spring?  You can arrange to have your item recycled for a useful second life by dropping it off at a free, Town-wide mattress collection event to be held on Saturday, September 18 from 9 am to 1 pm at Veteran’s Park, 909 Reef Road.

The event is sponsored by the Sustainable Fairfield Task Force (SFTF) in cooperation with the Mattress Recycling Council (MRC),  a nonprofit organization formed by the mattress industry to operate recycling programs in states that have enacted mattress recycling laws.

Any mattress, no matter when it was purchased, can be brought to the event for no-cost recycling, assuming it is not damaged, heavily soiled or posing other health or safety risks.
