Starting on May 1st, the City of North Bay’s Merrick Landfill site will be initiating a new Mattress Recycling Program. All mattresses and box springs, regardless of size or type will be subject to a processing fee of $20 per piece in order to cover the cost of the program. This includes local handling, shipping and processing at the new Ontario Mattress Recycling facility in Barrie.
The Merrick Landfill is located 26 kilometres north of the city on Sand Dam Road. It’s open Monday through Friday from 7:30am to 5:00pm, Saturday from 8:00am to 5:00pm and beginning on May 28th it will also be open on Sundays from noon to 4:00pm. If you have any waste related inquiries, the city asks you contact 705-474-0400 ext. 2333.
