Mattresses & Box Springs

Mattresses and Boxsprings are generally picked up as a bulk item with trash and taken to the landfill or incinerator.  Companies offering junk removal and cleanouts will also remove bedding for a fee.  If you have a newer mattress and boxspring 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.
