Thanks to our mattress stewardship program, Bye Bye Mattress, mattresses in CT are disassembled by Park City Green in Bridgeport for recyling/reuse. The majority of recovered raw materials are sold and re-manufactured into new products. โฃ

โฃOn May 8th Sustainable Westport will be hosting FREE mattress recycling day at Earthplace so save the date! Our event partners include Bye Bye Mattress, Park City Green, Earthplace and Scouts BSA Troop 36. SAVE THE DATE!!!โฃ

This is a 100% outdoor event. Please wear masks covering your nose and mouth. Thanks for working to stop the spread!

โฃ1) Bring your unwanted mattresses and box springs to RECYCLE THEM FOR FREE on May 8th at Earthplace where Sustainable Westport is hosting mattress recycling for Westport residents. Wet, heavily soiled or otherwise compromised mattresses must be taken to the town transfer station.

***Want someone to pick up your mattress? Scouts BSA Troop 36 are on it! Use this link to sign up online for free residential pick up while room remains on the truck.
Due to overwhelming demand, pick up service is closed to new requests. Please be sure to sign up for our newsletter to stay informed about additional mattress recycling opportunities.

2) Bring your own bucket or container and the Scouts will fill it with FREE COMPOST! While you’re at the compost station, we’ll tell you all abfood_scrap_recycling_starter_kitout our Zero Food Wast Challenge and invite you to join. Learn how to go zero food waste here or ask us how in person.

We’re taking donations so please bring your checkbook or cash. We will take your information and email you a receipt .
We also take donations online and invite you to become a regular monthly donor. We welcome donations of any size because every gift contributes towards transforming Westport into a sustainable, thriving community.

We believe nobody should feel hopeless about climate change.

Everyone should feel empowered to take meaningful and urgent action.
