A recent post about an unbelievable move out by Doogie[KS] mentioned the tenants left a mattress behind.
In my area all of the disposal sites now charge a flat $15.00 per mattress to dispose of it. Where you are, do you have to pay a separate fee to get rid of them?

I know the place I bring them to charges a $15 recycling fee whether they recycle them or go in the hopper. --38.142.xxx.xxx

Lynn, I'm sure we both use the same place. Theoretically they are put in some of those storage containers down by the metal bins & then sent to be recycled, bed bugs & all. --96.237.xx.xx

We have to pay $23 for each or bring to DPW dump site on Saturday morning for free..
Since that, many mattresses/box springs have mysteriously showed in some multifamily backyard over the years.. cost of doing business.. --108.34.xxx.xx

The city the apartments are in has a bag and tag program. Buy city trash bags and put them out on the street for collection. Recycling is free in the bins. Bulky items get a $5 bright orange sticker for non-metal items. Mattresses, wood furniture, couches, etc for curbside pick up. Every first off the month has a variety of mattresses and furniture curbside with orange stickers. Any items that donít qualify for curbside like yard waste and metal must be taken to the recycle center and other than yard waste there are set fees. --24.61.xxx.xx

Our town has a separate fee for mattresses, around $15, a fee for appliances, a fee for rugs( but if you cut them up and bag them, it is cheaper!) a fee for each bag of garbage, recycling is free if you pay for a garbage back, but a charge if you don't. All this involves you bringing it to the transfer station. Our town is not involved in any trash pickup, it is all private haulers. Some nearby towns contract with private haulers, but not ours.

Here, they are put to the street in a big pile along with the old couch, bags of trash, and everything together. The trash truck with a giant claw comes and takes it all away.
Of course we do pay for trash removal every month, integrated into the water bill. It's the same cost no matter how much you put out. --68.10.xxx.x

Same her as DJ. I don't understand how they would know what to charge if I show up with a truck or trailer load at the dump, do they go through the load to see how many mattresses are mixed in with everything else? --50.26.xx.xxx

Mike A, you have to put TVs, monitors & mattresses in special areas & pay a per item fee for each of them. If you have a resident sticker ($65.00 per year) you can dump household trash, leaves, grass, small bushes for no additional charge. Any non household trash requires you to go on the scale & pay $150.00 per ton. The sticker allows free parking at the beach as well as access to the dump & to the swap shed. --96.237.xx.xx

Steve, I took them to the dump. Yes, bedbugs and all. They recently (like in the last 4 months) started charging for mattresses. It's $25 per item, no matter what size. I took the mattress/box springs there and I also had 2 more from other houses. I did find out landfill will take them for $10 each, so I ended up paying $40 total. I'm surprised they don't charge for couches/loveseats, but I'm sure that will be coming in the very near future. I bill it back to the tenant. I either get paid or I don't, but it's a business expense come tax time. Really not much other choice on the matter. --72.209.xxx.xxx

Our city will pick them up but the mattress must be in a plastic bag. --68.60.xxx.xx

If you have county trash service, you can set one large/bulky item out with the trash once per month and it is included with trash service.
Or you can take a trailer/truck load for $40-50
Mattresses (by NE [PA]) Posted on: Jun 18, 2019 3:07 PM
I chuck them in a dumpster or burn them. --174.201.x.x

We've got a county solid waste district with a few different sites I can take furniture, electronics, tires, and chemicals (paint, oil, etc.) to for no charge (limited quantities) as a county resident. I have made a lot of use of it over the years, although as my tenant selection has improved, my use has decreased. --12.43.xx.xx
