Free Mattress & Electronic Waste Drop-off Event

The Department of Public Works will be holding their first Free Mattress and E-waste collection event of the year on this Saturday, January 7, 2023. This event takes place on the first Saturday of the month (unless noted otherwise). This FREE program has seen more and more participants each month and we expect that trend to continue. 

MTG will be in the lot across the street from City Hall collecting Mattresses, Box Springs, Computers and Electronics from 8:00 AM-10:30 AM, free of charge for Pawtucket Residents. In addition, there are Big Brother/Big Sister Bins located across from City Hall in the parking lot, in the Senior Center lot and also in the DPW parking lot for donating gently used clothes and shoes.

Please Note the Following:

  • No household trash, hazardous waste or appliances will be accepted.
  • Mattress and Box Spring collection is for PAWTUCKET residents only. 
  • Electronic waste is for residents as well as non-residents.
