Did you buy a new mattress? Free mattress pick up may be provided at the time of delivery, at no additional cost. Check with your retailer if the option was not offered at the point of sale.

Bye Bye Mattress

Residents can drop off an old mattress for free through California's mattress recycling program. Check the recycling locater here to find a participating recycling center, mattress collection site or collection event.

Curbside Bulky Item Pick Up

Many residential trash haulers offer free bulky-item pick up to residents. Contact your City trash hauler to find out if these services are available in your area.


Mattresses brought to OC landfills are set aside and recycled as part of the California mattress recycling program. For information on OC public landfill locations, hours of operation and fees, visit our page here.
