Getting ready to move out and need to toss that old mattress? Well, if you’re a Somerville resident, you’re in luck. The city of Somerville is now working with recycling company Green Mattress to bring schedulable mattress recycling right to your curb.

The new mattress recycling initiative was implemented on April 4 and allows residents to call 311 to schedule a mattress pickup by recycling contractor Green Mattress. The company then removes the mattress to a facility where its respective parts are recycled.
