Mattress Recycling in Salem  


Per new state regulations, mattresses and box springs can no longer be disposed of as trash and instead must be recycled. The City of Salem has contracted with Tough Stuff Recycling to provide curbside mattress and box spring recycling. Residents are responsible for $20/unit paid directly to Tough Stuff Recycling.

Mattress bags will be supplied by the City. They can be picked up at the City Hall Annex Engineering Department, 2nd floor 98 Washington Street during open business hours: Monday-Wednesday 8-4, Thursday 8-7, and Friday 8-12.
