Want to sleep like a rock tonight? Learn how to take care of the environment by disposing of your mattress properly so that it can be recycled, and we think you’ll sleep like a baby.
Mattress Firm suggests that consumers replace mattresses every 8 years, due to all the sweat, dust mites and dead skin cells that accumulate in a mattress. (That’s disgusting!) To learn more about this delivery & removal process, visit Mattress Firm.
If you’re not looking to replace a mattress, just remove one, things are a bit more challenging. Most charities like Salvation Army and GoodWill are not able to accept mattresses, however, there are several companies who will come and pick up your mattress for a fee and recycle it for you. For estimates on a mattress removals, we recommend calling College Hunks Hauling Junk and 1-800-Got Junk to see what their pricing and time frame is in your area.
And if you’re really up for a challenge, No Nonsense Landlord walks readers through a step-by-step process of how to take apart a mattress and box springs and separate it all for recycling.
