    What seems like a sensible legislative move in Ohio:

    City of Youngstown rules for mattress and box spring disposal: By law, all mattresses and box springs must be encased in a sealed plastic bag before they can be discarded. Before disposal, wrap the mattress and/or box spring in heavy-duty plastic (like a plastic tarp or plastic drop cloth) and securely seal it with duct tape. The sanitation department will only pick up mattresses and box springs that are wrapped and contained properly. If unwrapped items are placed at the curb, they will not be removed.

    Similar law in place in NYC. It's definitely a good idea.
