Update May 19, 2017: Please check back to submit online application for mattress collection, we are currently over capacity.
In June of 2016, the City started a new mattress recycling program to comply with the State’s mattress recycling initiative. Therefore mattresses and box springs are no longer collected curbside with regular trash. The new program allows residents to schedule the collection of a mattress and/or box spring, one piece or set on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month. Cut off for pickup requests is the Thursday before the collection. Please call the office or submit online pick up request form at www.eastprovidenceri.net/mattresscollection to schedule a pickup. Please keep in mind that mattresses/box spring can not be placed at the curb for collection prior to the day before the scheduled pickup.
If you have a mattress for disposal, please schedule pickup by using the Pickup Request Form on the city’s web site or contact the City’s Refuse and Recycling Division at 435-7710 to schedule a pickup. The first mattress pickup day will be Saturday, June 11th.
For more information contact the Recycling office at 435.7710 or 435-7701.
