Don't Throw That Old Mattress Away!
Perhaps your regular trash pickup will take away that old mattress. That may be the simplest option for disposal, but it definitely isn't the best.
Every single year, about 250 million pounds of mattress materials are sent to the landfill. Obviously, this takes up a ton of space, but there's more: mattresses consist of materials that are easily recycled. The quilting and foam can be used for carpet underlay, the wood can be recycled into biofuel, the steel in the box springs can be recycled for new metal parts, and the cotton and felt can be recycled for insulation. Additionally, mattresses contain fire retardants that leach into the soil, polluting plant life and waterways.
At 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, it's our mission to keep as many mattresses out of the landfill as possible, which is why we never take old mattresses to the landfill. Once we pick up your mattress, we take it to a trusted recycling facility, where it will be processed and recycled for further use.
Got Bed Bugs?
If you're tossing out your old mattresses because of a bed bug infestation, then we're happy to help. Ensure that your mattresses have been properly treated by a pest control company and have the proper documentation attached to them to show that they are no longer housing live bed bugs. We strive to ensure that we don't transport pests from one property to another, and we reserve the right to decline picking up an infested mattress that was not properly treated.
Are you reaching out on behalf of a hotel, dorm, or nursing home that has lots of mattresses that need to go? Our Albany junk removal experts love taking on jobs of all sizes! Simply let us know how many mattresses need to go, and we'll put together the right team for the job to ensure that your pickup is taken care of quickly.
