Dakota County Offers Reduced Fee Mattress Curbside Pick-up

Recycle Your Mattress Reduced Price Cubside Pickup

Certified Recycling in partnership with Dakota County is offering a special pick up rate for county residents through Sept. 6 for any type of mattress or box spring.

Certified Recycling in partnership with Dakota County is offering a special pickup rate for Dakota County residents through Sept. 6 for any type of mattress or box spring. Instead of sending them to a landfill, Certified Recycling disassembles the mattresses and box springs to recycle the metal, wood and cloth into new products. High-quality mattresses will be separated and donated to Bridging for people in need.

The fee for pickup and recycling is $45 for the first item and $25 for each additional item, with no limit on quantity. For more information and to schedule a curbside pick-up,  call 952-894-1448 or go to the Certified Recycling website at certifiedrecycling.org, look under pricing, then promotions.

Mattress disposal is the most searched-for item on the county Recycling Guide directory, yet Dakota County understands that getting rid of large items like mattresses is hard because of transportation and financial challenges. Through a pilot in 2020 with Dakota County, Certified Recycling collected nearly 780 mattresses and box springs in the county and kept 84,000 pounds of material from the landfill.
