Getting rid of a mattress?
Do it without getting fined (or destroying the earth)
Contrary to popular belief, you can’t just dump your mattress. In many places, you’ll be fined for leaving it on the curb for your garbage collector. In others, you’ll be charged with an ‘illegal dumping’ misdemeanor and face community service and restitution. To make matters worse, your landfill isn’t a responsible option because a mattress can take more than a decade to decompose here.
So what should you do?
You have options! Good, happy options like recycling and charitable donations.
Choose the condition of your mattress to see which options might be best for you.
