While you may have seen old mattresses thrown into a dumpster or lying on the side of a road, there are better options for throwing mattresses without causing harm to the environment.
Nearly 20 million mattresses enter landfill sites every year; since one mattress can take up to 40 cubic feet in a landfill, it is important to find a responsible mattress disposal option. Up to 90 percent of your mattress can be decomposed and recycled, so recycling is certainly a better option for the environment than throwing your mattress into the bin.
The experts at Hands Free Junk Removal can help you get rid of that bulky and heavy mattress. Not only do we handle the removal of the mattress, but we work with our donation partners to recycle, repurpose, and reuse the materials whenever possible.
Mattress Removal FAQs
Can I throw my mattress into the garbage?
Most garbage services will not take mattresses as part of their regular pick up route. This is because the mattresses are bulky, heavy, and need special transportation and disposal methods.
Recycling, donating and selling your mattress are all options to keep your old mattress out of a dump so you can enjoy your new mattress knowing that you have done your part to protect the environment.
