New Rates for Mattress & Box Spring Disposal
On July 1, 2018 the City of Helena Transfer Station will implement a disposal fee for mattresses and box springs for Commercial and Cash customers. The disposal fee is $10 per mattress or box spring.
This fee does not apply to residential permit holders that have remaining tonnage on their permit allowance. It will apply to permit holders who are over the 3000 pound allowance on their yearly tonnage.
The disposal area for mattresses and box springs is the north end of the facility just past the entrance to side 2 of the Transfer Station. Thank you for your co-operation.
