WEST HAVEN, April 27, 2023 — Effective immediately, mattress drop-off at the city garage on Collis Street has been discontinued because of public safety concerns, Public Works Commissioner Tom J. McCarthy announced.
To dispose of mattresses moving forward, McCarthy said West Haven residents must buy mattress bags from the Department of Public Works and put them out for pickup on their weekly curbside collection day.
The bags cost $10 each, payable by cash or check, and are available in the public works office on the third floor of City Hall, 355 Main St.
“As a courtesy to our residents, we have reduced the cost of the bags from $25 to $10,” McCarthy said. “We look forward to continuing our mattress collection service using the much-safer mattress bags.”
