Getting rid of a mattress can be a huge pain. You could leave it in the garage or attic to take up space and collect dust. Or you could toss it out to the curb and hope someone will come pick it up. Or even haul it off to the dump yourself. Not very appealing? We don’t think so either.

Luckily, we’ll cover a few ways you can get rid of an unwanted mattress for free.

Mattresses are, at the same time, the best thing that ever happened to us, and the bane of our existence.

Curling into a soft warm bed after a long day is one of the most luxurious and satisfying experiences of our lives. And for most of us, it can happen every day.

If you are the former you have our congratulations and our well wishes that it may last you all of your days. If you’re the latter then it’s time to ditch the mattress.
