Got an old mattress? Want to get rid of it, but don’t know how? Maybe you just don’t have the space to have an old mattress lying around.
Don’t panic. We can help.
Let’s talk about your options.
What Do You Do With A Used Mattress
Let’s say you have an old mattress. Or better yet, you’re just wanting to upgrade to something new and comfy. So what do you do with your old mattress?
Well, you have a couple of options:
- You can repurpose it and use it as a guest mattress
- You can take it to the dump
- You can recycle your mattress
The problem with repurposing your mattress is that, by the time your mattress becomes old, It’s probably full of dust and other stuff that makes it an allergy nightmare. And that’s not exactly welcoming.
And although you could just take it to the dump, that’s probably the least environmentally friendly option. You could, of course, recycle it, but frankly, that’s a pain to do.
There is another option, though. You could donate it.
Will Charity Shops Take Mattresses?
So can you donate a mattress to your favorite charity? Yes, but there are some exceptions. Some charities and non-profits won’t accept mattresses. That’s because most shops will not sell or give someone a used mattress. When you think of all the stuff a bed goes through, you probably wouldn’t want one that was used either, right?
Instead what they do is they normally recycle, repurpose, and reuse different parts of the mattress. Most charities will make new, cheap mattresses using old parts, so they’re not giving people in need anything gross.
Well, maybe your local thrift store sells mattresses, but they don’t accept used ones. That’s probably because they just have the resources to recycle them.
So before you load your old mattress in the car and take it to your favorite charity, try calling them or checking out their website to see if they accept mattresses first.
Where Can I Donate A Mattress Near Me?
Where can you go? It depends really.
The easiest thing to do is Google “Mattress donation, city” and just plug your city’s name in. It’s always great to give locally whenever possible and anyone who accepts old mattresses will likely pop up on Google if you search for it.
That being said, the Salvation Army often accepts old mattresses. And they’re all over the country!
