New Requirements for Curbside Collection of Mattresses and Box Springs

Effective May 1, 2019 mattresses and box springs must be completely covered with a plastic covering in order to be collected.

In keeping with the recent policy change made by the Prince George’s County Waste Management Division for the health and safety of staff, University Park residents requesting curbside collection of bulk trash items will be required to completely cover mattresses and box springs in a protective plastic covering. Plastic zippered mattress covers are available at many local retail stores for a nominal fee.

Mattresses and box springs delivered to the landfill by residents will not be required to be covered in protective encasement.
