Guidelines for Curbside Mattress Pickup


The Warren City Health District has issued guidelines for curbside mattress pickup. If you wish to leave a mattress at the curbside for garbage collection, please be aware of the following:


All mattresses placed at curbside must be plastic wrapped. The easiest and most economical method is to use disposable drop cloths, which can be purchased at any hardware or big box store. Please tape the plastic securely with strong tape so the entire mattress is covered.
