City of Oxnard Offers Free Mattress and Box-spring Recycling
Are you a resident of Oxnard? Do you have an old mattress or box spring to dispose? The City of Oxnard Environmental Resources Division now accepts mattresses and box springs for recycling. The program is for Oxnard residents and is free of charge. The Del Norte Regional Recycling and Transfer Station is located at 111 South Del Norte Boulevard, Monday through Saturday 5:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Residents can enter the location from Sturgis.
California’s Bye Bye Mattress is a state funded mattress recycling program, created by a 2013 law and managed by the Mattress Recycling Council. Thanks to this program, mattresses and box springs are diverted from landfills and used to make other useful products like carpet padding, insulation, filters, and mulch. It also helps deter illegal dumping by offering a zero cost solution to disposal.
As a participating facility, the Del Norte Regional Recycling and Transfer Station recycled more than 16,000 mattresses over the past 12 months. The recycling program has saved the City approximately $30,000 in hauling and landfill expenses. In addition to the savings the City receives $10 for every abandoned mattress or box spring it collects in Oxnard.
Help keep our streets and alleyways clean and save valuable landfill space by recycling your old mattress and box springs for FREE at the Del Norte Regional Recycling and Transfer Station.
