How do I Dispose of a Mattress?
When it comes to getting rid of your old mattress and replacing it with a new mattress it can be difficult to know what to do, after all, it’s not like you can just throw it in the trash and be done with it. Fear not though, up to 90% of old mattresses can be disposed of via recycling or being repurposed altogether.
The first step you should take is locating the nearest mattress recycling centre and then researching if they actually accept mattresses. Luckily for you, Weebble Junk Removal & Hauling is here. By teaming up with several recycling centres, Weebble Junk Removal & Hauling can ensure that all items, including mattresses, are disposed of carefully and responsibly.
It is easy to simply just dump your old mattress on the sidewalk away from your home or in a park but by doing that you would be damaging your local community and creating a problem that somebody else would then have to deal with. We each have a responsibility and doing things correctly when it comes to mattress disposal is just the right thing to do.
Landfills help nobody and in a world of hyper-consumption and huge inequality we should do what we can to help others around us whether it be by donating to others or even just making sure that we don’t contribute to the huge mountains of trash that are going nowhere fast.

Frequently Asked Questions
Here are a few commonly asked mattress questions we think you’ll find useful…
How Can a Mattress be Recycled?
A mattress can be recycled by directly being donated to a charity who will then make sure it gets to somebody who really needs it or it can also be stripped for parts and used to fix something else. It all depends on the condition and what is needed when you drop it off at the donation centre or with us. Mattress recycling is something that can provide somebody else with something that may have otherwise been too expensive for them. It not only helps reduce waste but also helps those in need of a helping hand get access to a mattress with a little life left in it.
Be sure to also check if any local centres offer a mattress pick-up service as some may not be able to do so. Here at Weebble Junk Removal and Hauling, we are more than happy to pick up your used mattress from your home so that you don’t need to worry about transportation, just give us a call on (888) 997-4768 to learn more and book an appointment.
Can a Mattress be Donated to Charity?
With an average lifespan of around seven or eight years, mattresses are something that needs to be replaced to ensure maximum efficiency but should you decide that you want something new a little sooner, you should consider donating your mattress to a charity such as The Salvation Army or Goodwill.
As long as the mattress is not falling apart and in some kind of decent working order, there is a huge chance that it can be donated or at least used for parts by one of the aforementioned charities as well as so many others. Goodwill does not accept used mattresses or box springs but they do accept bed frames, pads, bedding and linen but check what you have and make sure that you donate as much as you can.
The Salvation Army can help you with the disposal of your old mattress by offering a free collection service in certain locations while at other locations will accept drop-offs. The other high-profile charity mentioned is Goodwill. The widely known charity ensures that Americans have greater access to employability training and placement services when they otherwise would have had their pathway blocked. To fund this huge public service, Goodwill operates over three thousand thrift stores and donation/recycling centres throughout the United States.
We might be in the business of mattress disposal but we pride ourselves on both serving the local community that got us to where we are today and providing brilliant customer service.
When Should I Replace my Mattress?
As mentioned before, the average item in question should serve you for around seven to eight years but in all honesty, it is up to you. Only you can tell when items begin to feel old and in need of replacing so its always best to make time to check if the mattress is working as it should be and then acting accordingly.
You may find that your mattress needs replacing sooner and that’s perfectly okay too, especially if you’ve had plenty of use out of it, but if you do feel guilty about getting a new mattress a little sooner than normal, feel very free to donate it and help somebody less fortunate get some use out of it at the end of its lifetime.
What Can I do With an Old Mattress?
Old mattresses can go a long way to helping others whether that means going direct to single-family homes/households or being broken down for parts and being recycled to repair something with a little bit of life left. We understand mattress removal can be difficult, especially if you live you live in big apartment buildings for example, but we pride ourselves on our impeccable removal services and want to make the process of getting rid of your old mattresses as easy as possible.
You have a variety of mattress disposal options as stated elsewhere in this article and so its never been easier to make the choice what is both right for you and those around you.
Repurposing an Old Mattress
Getting a new mattress is exciting but knowing what to do with your old mattress is tricky. One of our favorite options when it comes to using your old mattress to create something new is stripping the material away to expose the springs and then lifting it on its side against the wall of your home to create a sort of shelving unit that is perfect for you to place plants or old photographs.
A little effort goes a long way and this is perfect for creating a rustic style feature in your home that is certain to get the attention of guests while also giving you the perfect opportunity to increase your plant collection. The insides of an old spring filled couch could also do a good job at this so be sure to think outside of the box.
