Free Mattress Recycling

Individuals can drop off mattresses and box springs at the Devlin Road Transfer Station. One set (mattress and box spring) will be accepted at no charge. Please note that customers with loads of multiple mattresses will be charged the regular gate fee.

Why recycle mattresses?

Mattresses and box springs are bulky and difficult to transport, and public access to inexpensive recycling opportunities is very limited, so illegal dumping of mattresses is a widespread problem.

What happens to mattresses and box springs after they are dropped off for recycling?

The mattresses and box springs are diverted from landfills, disassembled at mattress recycling facilities and used to make other useful products like carpet
padding, insulation, new steel, oil filters and mulch.

More info can be found here or ByeByeMattress.com

Can’t haul the mattress? NRWS/NCRWS picks them up at the curb with our bulky item service. Fees apply; call 255-5200 for details.

What homeowners should know before a flood occurs

If you live in a flood-prone area, take proactive measures to protect your home and your valuables:

  • Take pictures of your valuables for insurance inventory
  • Store your important documents in a waterproof container
  • Create digital versions and save them on a secure drive
  • Keep your valuables (e.g. keepsakes & family photos) out of the basement so they’re not in danger of flood water
  • Consider installing “check valves” in your home and sealing the walls in your basement
  • Raise your utilities (electrical panels, water heater, furnace, etc) above the base flood elevation
  • Keep your sump pump in working order with a battery backup
  • Keep a supply of sandbags, plywood, plastic sheeting or lumber to protect your home and valuables from flooding
  • Get flood insurance so you’re protected against the damages of a flood
  • Utilities are the #1 reason that people have to pay out of pocket because the claims are less than or equal to the deductible
  • If you remodeled your basement – discuss with your insurance agent to be sure your improvements are covered
  • Sign up for local weather alerts

  • Learn about your flood risk and the floodplain in your area at FloodSmart.gov

Napa County Coastal Cleanup

 

PROTECT YOUR HAPPY PLACE!


Napa County Coastal Cleanup
September 18, 2021
9am-12pm

VOLUNTEERS are needed to clean up Napa County’s streets & creeks!

COASTAL CLEANUP DAY is a statewide and international effort to clean trash and debris from beaches, bays, creeks, rivers, and lakes.

In 2020, 141 residents did their own Coastal Cleanup Day, removing 632 pounds of trash and recycling from Napa’s waterways.

That’s a little short of the 561 volunteers we had in 2019, so this year we’re working to safely bring more of you to multiple sites throughout Napa County.

We have locations stretching from Calistoga and Berryessa all the way down the valley into American Canyon.

Come out and help us keep Napa clean!

Reduce plastic bag waste—bring your own bucket, box, or bin for litter collection. If you have reusable gloves and a trash grabber, bring those, too!

All ages are welcome to participate.


Please register in advance.

For more details and to register:
