New Life Furniture Bank of MA has seen a dramatic increase in the intake of mattress and box springs as a result of the November 1st statewide ban on disposing mattresses and box springs in the trash. Effective April 1, 2023, New Life will only be accepting beds at drop-off on the last Saturday of every month or anytime from pickups. Mattresses and box springs will not be accepted on any other drop-off days. A fee of $40 per mattress or box spring will be required regardless of size and condition to cover the cost of sanitization and bagging. This will help ensure that the beds going to our clients are clean and protected when they arrive at their homes. Payment will be accepted through cash, check, Venmo, or credit card. The first mattress and box spring drop-off will be on April 29th. For those requesting a pickup, the fee will only apply to pickup requests submitted April 1st or later.
As a nonprofit that provides furniture, beds, and household goods to individuals and families transitioning out of homelessness, we aim to provide the best service for our clients. Since 2013, New Life has furnished over 4,700 households that would not have been possible without the community’s support through volunteering, furniture contributions, and donations.
