Will the Mattress Recycling Council or Bye Bye Mattress Program pick up my old mattress from my home?
Mattress Recycling Council or the Program does not pick-up mattresses from your home. We can recycle the mattresses your retailer collects for free. Only in California are retailers required by the law to offer to take back old mattresses when delivering new ones.
A retailer didn’t take back my old mattress because it deemed it unacceptable. Can MRC or the store refund my recycling fee?
No, state law requires retailers to collect this fee on any mattress and box spring sale to fund the state’s mattress recycling program. Contaminated mattresses posing a health or safety hazard are not eligible for recycling through the program.
Contact your city or town for advice on how to dispose of your mattress as solid waste.

A delivery or set up fee for new products may still apply. Common carriers used to deliver mattresses purchased on the internet are exempt from picking up used units. Units that pose extreme health or safety risks may be refused.
