Mattresses

California’s Used Mattress Recovery and Recycling Act requires mattress manufacturers to create a statewide recycling program for mattresses and box springs discarded in the state. CalRecycle has certified Mattress Recycling Council (MRC) to develop and administer the program known as Bye Bye Mattress. MRC funds its California activities through an $10.50 per unit recycling fee collected from consumers when they buy a mattress or box spring.

Mattresses may be taken to a mattress recycler free of charge. Mattresses may also be taken to any County owned Landfill or Transfer Station (North County, Foothill, and Lovelace) for disposal for free*

Most mattresses and box springs discarded by California residents are eligible for the program.  


The following materials do not qualify under the Mattress Recycling Program and are not eligible for free disposal, but may be disposed of as regular waste at all County owned facilities:


-Items infested with bed bugs
-Mattress pads or toppers
-Sleeping bags
-Pillows
-Car beds
-Juvenile products such as carriages, baskets, cribs, bassinets, dressing tables, strollers, and playpens or their pads
-Infant carriers, lounge pads, or crib bumpers
-Water beds or camping air mattresses
-Fold-out sofa beds
-Futons and furniture
