Mattresses & Box Springs

Mattresses and Box Springs are generally picked up as a bulk item with trash and taken to the landfill or incinerator.  If your waste hauler will not pick up these items they can be taken to a Construction & Demolition facility for disposal. Companies offering junk removal and cleanouts will also remove bedding for a fee. If you have a newer mattress and box spring in good condition, you may want to donate it to Salvation Army, see link at

The Consumer Affairs Mattress Disposal Guide can help in deciding whether to recycle, donate, sell or have a mattress hauled away.
