Best Ways to Rid Yourself of that Old Mattress for Free!

get rid of an old mattress

Getting rid of a mattress can be a huge pain. You might have the best memory foam mattress in the world right now, but one day you are going to need to get rid of it and get a new one. 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.

Letting Go

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. On the flip side, if you end up with a mattress that just doesn’t suit, you wake up every morning with a hangover and the sad realization that you did not party last night, instead you went to bed at 10:00 like a proper middle-aged man. 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.
