MADISON, Wis. - The city of Madison is suspending its mattress and box spring recycling program nine months after it started because of the loss of its recycling partner.
The program diverted 111 tons of mattresses and box springs before the recycler went out of business. The materials will now be sent to a landfill.
The city will no longer charge a fee for collection of mattresses or box springs. Residents can get refunds for unused fee stickers or they can be used to cover recycling fees for TVs, computers and computer monitors.
City officials said they will continue to look for other recycling options for mattresses and box springs.
Residents interested in getting a refund can call 608-266-4681.
