Is it time for a new mattress?
The Mattress Recycling Council’s Bye Bye Mattress Program will join the City of Elk Grove to host a free mattress recycling and box spring collection event this Saturday, June 1, at City Hall for Sacramento County residents. Do something good for your body and the environment by bringing your old mattress and box spring in for recycling at no cost.

Mattresses don’t need to end up in a landfill. Up to 80 percent of an old mattress can be recycled. Through this program, foam, steel, wood, cotton and other fibers from old mattresses are recycled and turned into everyday products such as carpet padding, mulch, and appliances.

Established by law and operated by the non-profit Mattress Recycling Council, the Bye Bye Mattress Program is funded by a recycling fee collected on each mattress and box spring sold in California. The fee is used to establish free drop-off locations and collection events throughout the state and transport collected units from these sites to companies that dismantle old mattresses and recycle the materials. Visit or call 1-855-700-9973 for more information.

WHAT:             Mattress Recycling and Box Spring Collection Event

WHEN:            Saturday, June 1, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

WHERE:           Elk Grove City Hall, 8401 Laguna Palms Way
