Rose Hill Transfer Station Begins Mattress Recycling Program

mattresses.jpg

The Town has joined a growing list of Bye Bye Mattress recycling collection site participants. Beginning Monday, May 2nd the Rose Hill Regional Transfer Station (163 Rose Hill Road) will accept old mattresses and box springs from the public free of charge during normal hours of operation.

Most mattresses and box springs will be accepted; however, severely damaged, wet, soiled, twisted or mattresses with bed bugs will NOT be accepted. Additionally, the program will NOT accept fold-out sofa beds. These items will be charged at $60 per piece.

Rhode Island’s Bye Bye Mattress is a statewide mattress recycling program created by a 2013 law and managed by the Mattress Recycling Council (MRC). MRC is a non-profit organization created by the mattress industry to develop and manage the program and is accountable to Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation. The program is funded through a $10 recycling fee collected when a mattress or box spring is sold in RI. This fee is used to pay for collecting, transporting and recycling discarded mattresses. To learn more, see our flyer here.

Residents that have questions may call the Town's Recycling Coordinator, Laura Pointek, at 789-9331 ext. 2259 or visit www.byebyemattress.com for additional information.
