Looking for Fast Mattress Disposal?

May 11, 2017.

Whether you’re upgrading to a new comfy bed, or you’re moving and you couldn’t find any more room in the moving truck—you need to figure out what to do with your mattress. While it may be tempting to just throw it out on the curb or set it on top of a dumpster, this isn’t the best method for responsible mattress disposal.

Why You Should Not Throw Away Your Mattress

We’ve all seen the errant mattress in an alley or at someone’s curb. Some of these may get picked up and be put in a new home, but it’s likely that a lot of these are ending up in the landfill. According to the Mattress Recycling Council, we throw out about 15 to 20 million mattresses, and they can take up a ton of space at the city dump (these items are often one of the largest items in your house after all).

Because about 80 percent of a mattress can be recycled—from the foam padding to the steel springs to the wooden frame—it just doesn’t make sense to constantly be throwing these items away in the trash when much of it can be re-used. And not to mention that mattresses and other large items that are thrown away instead of recycled are contributing to the amount of greenhouse gas emissions on the planet, which isn’t something you want to add to.

What You Should Do

If you find yourself needing to get rid of a mattress and are lacking a large pickup truck, what do you do?

Many yard sale visitors are leery of a used mattress and getting rid of it on Craigslist is always a hassle in a city where almost everyone takes public transportation. Hardly anyone has a large enough truck to transport it.

The easiest and quickest solution to getting this bulky, unwanted item out of your house is to contact us here at Jiffy Junk. We can save you the pain and the nuisance of trying to figure out how to transport your mattress to a recycling center, or from trying to sell or give it away on Facebook marketplace.

No matter how big, small, or oddly shaped your door frames or house is, our experts can handle the job of getting that mattress out safely.

The best part about our removal services is that if your mattress is in decent condition, we always first try to donate. If it doesn’t fit the qualifications for donation, then we will recycle or dispose of it according to local and state laws.
