One week left to take advantage of no-cost mattress and TV recycling through Clean Green Springfield


Springfield residents have until May 31 to take advantage of no-cost disposal of televisions and mattresses through the Clean Green Springfield litter cleanup and beautification initiative.

Items including mattresses, televisions and tires are often dumped in alleyways and along Springfield streets. They not only take up space in the landfill, but also pose a threat to the environment if not properly disposed of.

TV Recycling – Ends May 31!

Computer Recycling Center, 528 N. Prince Lane
10 a.m.- 5 p.m., Monday – Saturday during the month of May (CLOSED MEMORIAL DAY - 5/29)

The City has partnered with the Computer Recycling Center to provide no-cost television recycling of up to 200 TVs through Clean Green Springfield. TV’s accepted include CRT, LED, Plasma, Big Screen, Console and LCD TVs.

No voucher is required. Just mention “Clean Green Springfield.” Limit ONE no-cost TV recycling per residential household available on a first-come first-served basis.

Items will be collected at their facility at 528 N. Prince Lane during regular business hours, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday-Saturday. Items must be transported to the facility. No home pickup option is available. Staff members from Computer Recycling Center will be available to help unload items as they arrive at their location.  


Mattress Recycling – Ends May 31! 

Lone Pine & Franklin Avenue recycling centers, Noble Hill Sanitary Landfill (CLOSED MEMORIAL DAY - 5/29)

Americans dispose of an estimated 20 million mattresses and box springs every year, and the vast majority end up in landfills or incinerators. Bulky mattresses are hard to dispose of and often dumped. They are also problematic for landfills: they take up a lot of space because they don’t compact well and are hard on machinery. Mattresses contain non-biodegradable synthetic foam and fibers, plus flame retardant chemicals. Recycling your bed can help reduce your carbon footprint and help our landfill last longer!

Clean Green Springfield will cover the cost of recycling up to 500 mattresses at the City’s three current mattress recycling sites:

Franklin Avenue Recycling Center (731 N. Franklin Ave.)
Hours: 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Tuesday - Saturday 

Lone Pine Avenue Recycling Center (320 S. Lone Pine Ave.)
Hours: 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Tuesday - Saturday

Springfield Noble Hill Sanitary Landfill (3545 W. Farm Road 34)
Hours: 7 a.m. – 4 p.m., Monday – Friday | 7 a.m. – 3 p.m., Saturday

No voucher is required. Just mention “Clean Green Springfield.”

Limit 4 pieces per residential household. Mattress and box springs accepted. Mattresses must be clean, dry and free of infestation.

About Mattress Recycling 

Collection and processing of the mattresses will be provided via a contract with BedHead Mattress Recycling. Mattresses will be transported to BedHead’s facility in Billings, then deconstructed. Components are processed, shipped and ultimately become raw materials utilized by a number of manufacturers in products such as construction materials, wood chip mulch and more.

The City of Springfield offers the opportunity to recycle old mattresses and box springs year-round at the Lone Pine Avenue and Franklin Avenue Recycling Centers and Springfield’s Noble Hill Sanitary Landfill for a fee of $15 per piece, regardless of size.
