Mattresses can be a huge nightmare to deal with. They are a hard pick when buying them. They can be hard to get used to if you haven’t picked the right one. And then you eventually get to the point when you have to buy a new one and the old one has to go. That means you now get the precious job of sending it away. And this is not as simple as dumping it next to the rubbish bin and waiting for the collectors to come and pick it up. There are some steps you should go through and they come as follows:
Number 1: Inspect Your Mattress
If your mattress is in good condition or you are replacing it merely for aesthetic purposes, just research the local charity shops or homes. There is a big chance some of them may be looking for something like that and you might make a deal. Or just donate the mattress to one of the many homes and centres looking for ways to update their facilities. Many of them offer a free collection, so it won’t even cost you anything other than the time it takes to research them.
Number 2: Call Your Local Clearance Company
And then you have the best way to dispose an old mattress: the clearance company. Pick one of your choice (you surely have enough options) and get the service that best suits your needs. One visit from the professional collectors later and you are done. The mattress is gone, your bedframe is free to take the next one. One thing you should be careful about when picking a company, though, is picking one that will handle the recycling of your mattress. Many companies will merely handle the removal and then dump the mattress in a landfill and you want to avoid that. Mattress components can be recycled and upcycled in many ways if in the right hands, so make a careful pick. Do some research on your local choices and then get somebody to come over and handle the mattress disposal quickly so that you don’t have to deal with that anymore.
Mattress disposal is simple when you do it the right way. Make sure all the options are covered first and then make your pick. Always check twice before any decision and then you are good to go.
