Four Things You Can Do to get rid of your old Mattresses
Have you decided that it’s time to replace your mattress after sleeping on it? Here are four options for your mattress removal alternatives before putting it out on the curb to be picked up by your current garbage pick-up provider (even though they may not take it!).
Options for Mattress Removal
Recycle It: Did you know that an average mattress can be dismantled and broken down into raw materials to the tune of 80 percent to 100 percent? These materials are then repurposed to create new items. Unfortunately, recycling your mattress is not always simple. You’ll have to find a recycling facility and transport it yourself. There are websites online that have more information on this, but rember that you will have to do the work on this option.
It can be sold: Did you have fewer visitors than you expected in your guest room? You might be able to sell your gently used mattress for a profit! Offer it for sale on a local yard sale site, or on a buy and sell website like Facebook Marketplace, and ask that the buyer pick it up. Be honest about how much you’ve used it and whatever flaws it has, and don’t set your price too high.
Donate It: If your mattress is in decent condition, you can contact a charity to see if they will accept it. This is a great approach to see if an old item can be repurposed. However, not all charities are prepared to accept mattresses, so you’ll have to do some research and some do not accept mattresses without first seeing the condition and even then depending on how many they have, they might not take it.
