When you recycle your mattress (foam or futon) and box spring, you reduce the amount of waste going to our landfill.
To recycle your mattress and box spring, you can:
Don't dump your mattress in an alley or on the street. It's illegal and you could be fined for illegal dumping.
Mattresses with bedbugs can be recycled at the Transfer Station and Landfill—depending on the level of contamination—for the mattress recycling fee.
Prepare a mattress with bedbugs for safe transport, handling, and recycling.
Learn about controlling bedbugs in a Vancouver Coastal Health guide.
To recycle more than the maximum amount of mattresses accepted at the Transfer Station or Landfill, first contact a private mattress recycling company. If you can't find a company to recycle the mattresses, dispose them at the Landfill for a fee.
If a mattress recycling company can't recycle your mattress, bury it at the Landfill.
