How Do I Dispose of My Old Mattress?

Nothing is better than your first night’s sleep on a new mattress. But worrying about how you’re going to get rid of your old mattress can keep you tossing and turning instead.  Where do I take it?  Can I get a friend to help me?  Can I recycle a mattress?  How do I dispose of a mattress in an environmentally friendly way?   It’s all such a hassle.  

So what do you do when you need a mattress removed quick?  There are a few options, depending on how much time and effort you want to put in. You can try to sell it, you can look into recycling your mattress, or you can have it hauled away.

Selling Your Old Mattress

If your mattress isn’t too old and is still in good shape, you might want to think about selling.  There are a lot of online markets where you can post pictures and find people who are looking for a deal.  Just remember, sanitation is key and there are requirements for selling used mattresses. So check your local codes to see what standards you have to meet. You don’t want to try and sell any mattresses with stains or broken springs.  But, if your old mattress is in good shape, selling can be a great way to get someone to pay you for its removal!

Mattress Recycling

Every day, hundreds of mattresses are dumped into landfills across our country.  The reality is, mattresses don’t break down easily.  So when they go into a landfill, they’ll be there for a while. All of us want to do our part to reduce our footprint in the world.  And mattress recycling is a great way to help take some of that load off the environment. The only problem is, there are not a lot of places that can do it.  And because few places do it, it can be hard to get a mattress to the recycling center.

DIY Mattress Disposal

Mattress removal is a lot more complicated than just dragging it out to the curb.  Because they’re so big and bulky, your regular trash men can’t sling it in with your kitchen bags. Instead, mattresses have to be taken to special disposal locations. If you want to do it yourself, you’ll need to plan ahead so that you know where to take it and how much you’ll be charged to dispose of your mattress.  And make sure that you have a couple of friends to help you, since mattresses are heavy and difficult to move. Taking care of mattress removal on your own may seem like a way to save a bit of money. But the reality is, the time, energy, and cost of doing it yourself are often just not worth it.
