Any mattress or box spring put out with regular garbage for bulk collection must be sealed in a plastic bag. The City created this rule to help prevent the spread of bed bugs. Items not properly disposed of will not be collected and may result in a $100 fine.
The City does not provide mattress or box spring bags or covers. You can get them at department stores, home improvement stores, and moving supply centers.
You can report uncovered mattresses or box springs put out for collection.
