How to dispose of … Mattresses and Box Springs

Mattress and Box Spring Recycling – The Town of Smithfield does not pick-up mattresses and/or box springs curbside.

Mattress/ box spring disposal suggestions:

Please note:  It is important to keep mattresses and box springs clean and dry so that they can be recycled for no cost.

  • When purchasing a new mattress, arrange for the old mattress to be taken away upon delivery. Check with your mattress retailer for associated fees. 
  • Bring clean, dry mattresses/box springs to RIRRC, 65 Shun Pike in Johnston, for recycling, during their normal business hours. Maximum of three pieces.
  • Bring clean, dry mattresses/ box springs to Town drop off events for recycling. Mattresses/ box springs must be clean and dry to be accepted for recycling.  Check the Town Trash and Recycling Calendar for dates and times. Please be sure to call 401-233-1034 x 105 for an appointment to drop-off a mattress/ box spring.
  • Contact a junk collection or moving company for a pick-up.  Fees apply
