Information on Mattresses, Box Springs Waterproof Storage Bags
Residents that would like a mattress or box spring picked up from the curb are required to first put them in a waterproof plastic or vinyl storage/disposal bag.
Cotton mattress protectors are not acceptable, it needs to be waterproof.
Most places that sell moving materials and stores that sell bed sheets sell the storage bags. They are typically marketed as a storage bag for when you’re moving, or as a protector against allergens. Average costs range from $10-$20, depending on where they’re purchased .
Examples of vinyl/waterproof storage bags:
• In-store at Wal-Mart (in Monona, Mainstays brand, “Waterproof zippered vinyl mattress protector”, $12)
• In-store at U-Haul (west Madison, storage bag, $8)
* Amazon.com (Linenspa brand, “mattress storage bag with double adhesive”, $11)

Brooklyn Fireworks was a tradition that was stopped in 2016 due to lack of volunteers and funds. Since then residents and businesses in the community have inquired if it will return. While it will not return under the Village’s leadership, we are looking for a group(s) or other entities that would lead the revival of this event for the 2018 season. If you are interested in leading this effort, please contact the Village Clerk’s office.
