If it's time to get rid of your old mattress, Sonoma County has a program to make that happen by RECYCLING the mattress! EASY!
The Mattress Recycling Council’s Bye Bye Mattress ProgramandZero Waste Sonoma are coming together for aFREE three-day mattress collection event in Rohnert Park for Sonoma County residents.
Only mattresses and box springs that are not excessively damaged, wet or soiled will be accepted at no-cost for recycling. Three-unit max per vehicle.
Up to 80 percent of a mattress can be recycled. Foam, steel, wood, cotton and other fibers from old mattresses can be turned into everyday products such as carpet padding, appliances, biomass fuel and more.
The following items are ACCEPTED:
• Mattresses and box springs, any size
The following items are NOT ACCEPTED:
• Severely damaged, wet, twisted, frozen or soiled mattresses or box springs.
• Items infested with bed bugs
• Mattress pads or toppers
• Sleeping bags

• 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
The Mattress Recycling Council was formed by the mattress industry to operate recycling programs (known as Bye Bye Mattress) in states which have enacted mattress recycling laws – California, Connecticut and Rhode Island. Since its inception in 2016, the program has recycled more than 4 million mattresses in California through a network of partnerships with local governments, solid waste facilities, nonprofit organizations and small and minority-owned businesses throughout the state.
