It is now much more difficult to get rid of your old mattress and the rest of your belongings in New York City because of the bed bug epidemic we have been facing latley.
Beginning on Friday, Dec. 3, 2010 all NYC residents must seal all mattresses and/or box springs in plastic bags before putting them outside on the curb in front of their home for collection.
Itâ€™s really hard to know in advance whether or not a store has bed bugs or not. 2009 StarzLife.
The new rule is set in place to help avoid the spread of bed bugs and to help control the spread of bed bugs. Bed bugs are generally nocturnal and tend to live in bedding, such as mattresses and box springs, hiding in their cracks and crevices until they are ready to feed.
This new rule applies to all types bedding, regardless as to whether or not it is infested by bed bugs. If you do however place a mattress or box spring out on the curb for collection without bagging it first, you could be looking at fines of $100.
â€śThere has been a rise in bed bug-related complaints within the city, and bedding is the prime nesting place for most bed bugs,â€ť said Sanitation Commissioner John J. Doherty. â€śWe will safeguard our workers and help to mitigate the spread of bed bugs throughout the City.â€ť
The sanitation department also suggests that the plastic mattress bags be placed around the bedding before it is removed from the room out to the curb to further limit bed bugs from infesting other parts of the home.
The sanitation commissioner says the plastic bags to contain the bedding are available at department stores, home improvement centers, at other home supply businesses, and online.
