Bayonne Recycling Yard Will Now Accept Mattresses & Box Springs

Bayonne Recycling Yard to Accept Mattress and Box Spring Drop-Offs

Mayor Jimmy Davis has announced that the Bayonne Recycling Yard at 330 Hook Road will start accepting drop-offs of wrapped mattresses and box springs effective Saturday, December 4, at 10:00 a.m.  The Constable Hook Recycling Yard will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Mondays through Saturdays, except holidays.  Mattresses and box springs must be wrapped in plastic or in mattress covers for sanitary reasons.  Please note that unwrapped mattresses and box springs will be refused.   The drop-off program is for Bayonne residents only.  Everyone dropping off mattresses or box springs must show identification with proof of Bayonne residency.  

Curbside pick-up of wrapped mattresses and box springs will continue weekly on a space-available basis.  Mattresses and box springs will be picked up by reservation only.  To reserve a pick-up, please call 201-858-6123.  The next available date for curbside pick-ups of mattresses and box springs will be Tuesday, December 28.  The number of mattresses in recent weekly pick-ups has increased from fifty to sixty. Mayor Davis explained, “We are adding the option of allowing residents to drop off wrapped mattresses and box springs for two reasons: 1.) It will provide for quicker disposal of mattresses than the weekly curbside pick-ups.  2.) It will reduce the volume of mattresses that pile up on the trucks during rounds of curbside pick-up.   

The new drop-off program for mattresses and box springs applies to just those items.  Couches, tables, chairs, and other bulky items will NOT be accepted at the Constable Hook Recycling Yard. 

Traditionally, the Constable Hook Recycling Yard has accepted drop-offs of electronics (such as TV’s, stereos, and computers) and scrap metal.  Those items will still be accepted.  

Due to the observance of various upcoming holidays, the Constable Hook Recycling Yard will be closed on Friday, December 24 (Christmas Eve), Saturday, December 25 (Christmas Day), Monday, December 27 (Christmas holiday observed), Friday, December 31 (New Year’s Eve), Saturday, January 1 (New Year’s Day), and Monday, January 3 (New Year’s holiday observed).  The Recycling Yard is not open on Sundays.    

The Recycling Yard can be contacted by telephone at 201-858-6152.
