We’ve all seen them: on the side of the road, in alleys, stained, dirty and discarded. Along with being gigantic eyesores, they are dangerous and provide a perfect breeding ground for all types of germs and bacteria. I am of course talking about old mattresses.

Old mattresses are one of the most popular illegally dumped items for several reasons. They cannot be collected along with your regular curbside waste because the garbage/recycling trucks lack the space to take them. Most landfills and dumps will turn mattresses away because they cannot be compressed easily along with other materials.

Thrift stores will take used mattresses, but not often. In fact, Goodwill no longer accepts used mattresses. Thrift stores will require the mattress to be in good condition and bedbug free, and chances are that you will have a hard time getting rid of it because it’s in less-than-perfect condition. Given these issues and having nowhere else to turn, people resort to illegal dumping, risking fines and guaranteeing a guilty conscience.

Smarter Mattress Pickup and Disposal Options

Here at Fast Haul, we provide a safe, legal means for disposing of old mattresses 7 days a week. Whenever possible, we take the mattresses we collect to reputable recyclers to be safely dismantled so each component can be sorted, recycled or disposed of. Should your old mattress be in a good enough condition to donate, we will do so. Either way, you can rest assured that your old mattress will not be clogging up any landfills!
