Thankful for Mattress Disposal

Sad City readers are no doubt familiar with the mattress problem that plagues the sidewalks of Hartford. While the Mayor has recently taken steps to combat the mattress problem, Sad City recently spotted a truck full of discarded mattresses making their way to their final resting spot off the Jennings Road exit. While we could not confirm whether or not these were Hartford mattresses, it is encouraging to see some going to meet their maker.


  1. It's important to walk around the mattresses, couches, etc. That are on the sidewalks. Hartford has a bedbug problem. If you get them, you'll be traumatized for the rest of your life—even when you get rid of them.

  3. This reminds me of a dirty job episode I saw when he was cleaning up mattresses on the streets of San Fran. Of course if you have a comfy latex mattress you may never have to throw away your mattress.
