Mattress/Box Spring Recycling
Effective November 1, 2022, please be advised that the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) enacted a new mattress/box spring recycling mandate. These items are no longer accepted in weekly household trash as a bulk item. For the disposal of mattresses and box springs we encourage you to:
Contact the store from which the new items are purchased to discuss recycling options
If you do not utilize your point of purchase for such recycling, the Town is working with MassDEP and local vendors to offer alternative recycling solutions. Once procedures are in place more information will be shared.
Updates can be found on the Town of Canton website www.town.canton.ma.us
